The first season of ‘Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness’ clawed its way to the top of Netflix’s viewing charts with an impressive combined audience of 64 million worldwide in its first month.
AceShowbiz –Carole Baskin is allegedly demanding a $1.2 million (£1 million) fee to take part in a second season of hit Netflix show “Tiger King”.
Baskin was one of the subjects of the docuseries “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness“, which followed zoo owner Joe Exotic as he was convicted of plotting to kill the animal rights activist and also explored rumours that she was involved with the disappearance of her wealthy ex-husband, who was legally declared dead in 2002.
While Exotic is said to have jumped on board after Netflix reportedly secured the rights to a second series of the show, Baskin has yet to sign on the dotted line – according to Britain’s The Sun newspaper – and is reportedly negotiating a hefty fee.
“Carole is asking for a seven-figure sum,” a source told the publication. “It’s around the $1.2 million mark. She wants to plough it into her Florida sanctuary, Big Cat Rescue.”
“Taking part in ‘Tiger King’ opened up her private life and she wants to make sure it’s worth her while.”
The first season of “Tiger King” clawed its way to the top of Netflix’s viewing charts with an impressive combined audience of 64 million worldwide in its first month on the streaming platform.
Several spin-offs, including a reported movie, a TV series starring “Saturday Night Live” star Kate McKinnon, and an Investigation Discovery channel sequel are all said to be in the works following the success of the show.
