Nicolas Cage-Led ‘Tiger King’ Drama Series Scrapped at Amazon

The retail giant/streamer has ditched plans to move forward with its scripted drama series based on the Netflix docuseries and a Texas Monthly article. Nicolas Cage was due to star as Joe Exotic in the series. Producers CBS Studios, which envisioned the show as an eight-episode limited series, will likely shop the project to other outlets. – Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter »
