"Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness" is a 2020 American true crime documentary miniseries about the life of zookeeper Joe Exotic. The series explores the deeply interconnected society of big cat conservationists and collectors in America, and the private zoos and sanctuaries they have set up for these unusual and deadly animals. The primary subject is Joe Exotic, the eccentric owner of the G.W. Zoo in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, and his bitter years-long feud with Carole Baskin, CEO of Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida. The series records the events leading up to Joe Exotic's conviction under federal murder-for-hire statutes when it comes to light that he paid a hit man to murder Baskin; resulting in a 22-year federal prison sentence.

The series was watched by 45.3 million people over its first ten days of release, ranking as one of Netflix's most successful releases to date.
