Thinkfactory partners with ‘Tiger King’s’ Baskins for new unscripted series

LA-based, ITV America-owned prodco Thinkfactory Media has partnered with Carole and Howard Baskin, subjects of TV phenomenon Tiger King, to produce a new unscripted series exposing animal abuse.

The series will follow the husband-and-wife team behind US animal sanctuary Big Cat Rescue as they, and others, work to expose those who abuse and take advantage of animals.

The Baskins rose to fame earlier this year due to their involvement in the Netflix true crime documentary Tiger King, which explored their ongoing feud with zookeeper Joe Exotic, whom they accused of animal abuse, with the series becoming one of the streamer’s most successful offerings to date.

Thinkfactory CEO Adam Reed commented: “This partnership and new series fall right into Thinkfactory’s wheelhouse, offering a unique new format with incredibly vibrant and passionate individuals at its center. Carole and Howard are fun, intense, unpredictable, wildly driven, and, oh yeah, they’ve very recently become pop culture sensations. We’re excited this project will offer them an opportunity to propel their work in unconventional and heart-pounding new ways.”

“This is a chance for us to use our new platform to battle the everyday evils facing big cats and so many other animals,” said the Baskins. “Working with Thinkfactory on this show will help us further our life’s mission, while bringing important stories and information to ‘cool cats and kittens’ across the country.”
