Kate McKinnon’s ‘Joe Exotic’ Series Ordered by NBCUniversal
Just when I think "Okay, that's it. The Joe Exotic story is over," something new comes up. It looks like there's a new TV series centered around the wild story.

The series was ordered without a pilot episode, and will be based on the Wondery podcast "Joe Exotic", NBCUniversal announced on Tuesday.
McKinnon's show will air in three places:
- NBC Broadcast Network
- USA Channel
