Lies, jealousy, disappearing millionaires, big cats and delusions of grandeur lie at the heart of the new Netflix phenomenon ‘Tiger King.’
Hit the link below to find out how it has become one of the fastest-rising releases on the ground breaking streaming platform.
‘King’ tells the story of a man named Joe Exotic and his dubious associates who are making a fortune from the lucrative world of big cat business.
Unfortunately for them, that fortune finds itself in danger when a powerful woman (whose millionaire husband vanished without a trace years earlier) makes it her mission to ruin their potentially exploitative fun with the help of animal rights activists.
It was viewed by 34 million unique viewers in the first ten days of its unleashing.
On an average per-minute basis, “Tiger King” pulled in an audience of 19.0 million among U.S. viewers from March 20-29, Nielsen reported. That also was higher than “Stranger Things 2” (17.5 million) and nearly matched “Stranger Things 3” (20.5 million).
It roared to popularity as the COVID-19 pandemic swept the U.S., with viewers presumably eager to immerse themselves in escapist entertainment that has the added intrigue of being a true story.
Reports indicate that Netflix may be preparing another episode but they are to confirm this.
