Netflix’s smash documentary Tiger King took a world in lockdown by complete storm back in 2020.

The strange saga of the bitter feud between cat-lovers Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic has now been turned into a TV drama – and we can’t wait to hear about them all over again.

Kate McKinnon (SNL, Ghostbusters) stars as feline queen Carole Baskin, while John Cameron Mitchell (Girls, Hedwig And The Angry Inch) stars as outrageous zookeeper Joe Exotic.

Read on to find out where you can watch this brand-new drama in the UK and US – you’ll find there’s more than one option available and ways that can save you money.

Joe vs. Carole release date

This fictionalised version of Tiger Kind is set for a release on Thursday 3 March in the US and Friday 4 March in the UK.

There will be a total of eight episodes in the first season of the show.

How to watch Joe vs. Carole in the UK

Option 1: Sky

Joe vs Carole is premiering on Peacock TV.

In the UK, this isn’t available as a standalone service – instead, it’s folded into Sky’s Sky+ and SkyQ packages.

  • Sky TV, from £26 a month – buy here

These come at a multitude of price points – take a look below. Keep in mind Sky’s latest innovation, the Sky Glass: a TV that’s got Sky built into it.

There are various options available, and you don’t need to spend an upfront sum on the TV itself.

Option 2: Use a VPN

Another, cheaper option is to invest in a VPN, which will let you access Peacock as if you are based in the US or another region where the service is available.

An important note: what we’re suggesting is totally legal, and at present is simply tech-savvy workaround.

Peacock has a basic free service, but the Premium tier ($4.99 a month) unlocks more content and keeps ads to a minimum.

Peacock is also a streaming service that’s included in NOW – or it’s formerly and better known, NOW TV.
