Carole and Howard Baskin, the husband and wife team behind Big Cat Rescue — the Tampa-based non-profit animal sanctuary made famous by Netflix docuseries Tiger King – have partnered with ITV America’s Thinkfactory Media to develop and produce a new unscripted series.
The yet-untitled series, which is being taken to market imminently, will feature the Baskins (pictured), alongside others, as they work to expose animal abuse by zeroing in on lawsuits and alleged animal rights violations associated with certain organizations.
Carole joined the most recent season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
Thinkfactory CEO Adam Reed said in a statement: “This partnership and new series fall right into Thinkfactory’s wheelhouse, offering a unique new format with incredibly vibrant and passionate individuals at its center. Carole and Howard are fun, intense, unpredictable, wildly driven, and, oh yeah, they’ve very recently become pop culture sensations. We’re excited this project will offer them an opportunity to propel their work in unconventional and heart-pounding new ways.”
Los Angeles-headquartered Thinkfactory has produced such unscripted fare as A&E’s What’s it Worth?, We TV’s Mama June: From Not to Hot, MTV’s Dogg After Dark and TLC’s Stranger Love, among others.
The prodco currently has projects in the works with networks including Lifetime, TBS, History and CNBC.
