Joe Exotic: Tigers, Lies, and Cover-Up

Premiere Begins Sunday, September 27 at 9/8c and Concludes Monday, September 28 at 9/8c

In a matter of months, Joe Exotic and his sworn enemy, Carole Baskin, have become household names. Their saga played out for the world to see, but what has happened since the cameras stopped rolling? ID’s definitive sequel, JOE EXOTIC: TIGERS, LIES AND COVER-UP, examines the biggest question in true crime today – what happened to Carole Baskin’s husband, Don Lewis? This three-hour special takes a new look at the evidence surrounding Lewis’s mysterious disappearance, helmed by an exclusive jailhouse interviews from the biggest character in the world: Joe Exotic himself. Retired homicide investigator Jim Rathmann leads the investigation to discover the truth, revealing new theories uncovered by private investigators, reliving Lewis’s final days and demeanor with those closest to him, and unpacking evidence uncovered by criminal and legal experts. Punctuated throughout are interviews with those in Joe’s inner circle, including husband, Dillon Passage and members of “Team Tiger,” a group working to free Joe from jail. Beyond the controversial missing person investigation, this special also explores the criminal case against Joe Exotic, and all the factors that led him straight to prison. New evidence comes to light that begs the question: Was Joe Exotic the predator all along, or is he actually the prey?
