During a new interview with ‘People,’ Tiger King star Jeff Lowe talked about his new project with his wife Lauren Lowe, and signed for a reality TV show.
As you might recall, in Netflix documentary Tiger King, Joseph ‘Joe Exotic’ Maldonado-Passage had partnered with Jeff Lowe to make his zoo better. However, this partnership ended with the disagreements between him and Jeff Lowe.
However, Jeff Lowe said that the reality show is about his life, and it divulges a lot more details about the relationship between himself and now-imprisoned Oklahoma zookeeper Joe Exotic. He said:
“It’ll be our narrative on the Tiger King with evidence to support our sides of the stories. And it will be about the transfer of all these beautiful animals from Joe’s facility to the new facility.
And then the day-to-day struggle of running something as big as a 60-acre animal park and all the intricacies of the employment of zookeepers and fighting all of the animal rights groups.”
Jeff shared his thoughts the main goal of the reality show is to prove to the world that it can be done right:
“We have an immaculate reputation with the USDA who regulates all the zoos in the world. We have a great relationship with them. We have a great relationship with Fish and Game. The state of Oklahoma, all the game wardens, they really like us, so I think it’ll be an interesting show.”
Also, his wife chimed in and added:
“Just showing the animals going from small enclosures to bigger enclosures. We just want to put a brighter light on things because everybody wants to put a horrible light on roadside zoos. Every zoo is off of a road.”
Jeff Lowe continued:
“We’re just going to have to find out.
They haven’t even given us an exact date of production. It’s in pre-production right now. It’s with a content group in California, and it will prove to be very, very informative.
We’re filming B-roll right now. It’s hard with COVID-19 to put crews together and get them all out here, staying in hotels. It’s just a little bit difficult, but I think they anticipate a few more weeks before they start all of the big camera filming.”
