This is an American-made documentary television series. The first season premiered on March 20, 2020, on the Netflix platform.

“Tiger King…Murder, Mayhem and Madness” is that same series which we will associate the beginning of 2020 with. Released at the end of March, exactly when the quarantine began worldwide, the documentary series became an instant hit thanks to the lack of competitors and the utterly stunning plot. We see a specific microcosm of private zoos owners in the south of the United States. We meet both an “enlightened guru” who lives with all his helpers and a lady who rescues big cats and makes good money. But the main hero is Joe Mystic, an expressive man with a gun and a mullet hairdo.

“Tiger King” is the very case when every turn of this authentic story surprises the audience.

The authors of this documentary series stumbled upon a gold mine: sometimes, it seems that this freak show does not even need directing.
