By now you've probably heard about the Netflix docuseries 'Tiger King'. The series follows the crazy life and times of Joe Exotic, an excentric zoo keeper with a deep love for tigers.

For those fans craving more Tiger King content, they won't have to wait too long. CBS is creating an 8 part dramatised series based on Tiger King and Nicolas Cage is set to take on the titular role!

When Cage takes on the role of Joe Exotic, it'll be the first time he has ever appeared in a TV show, Variety reports.

The show will reportedly focuse on "how the normal Joe Schreibvogel became the outlandish and - ultimately - incarcerated Joe Exotic."

The creator of the Netflix mockumentary 'American Vandel' is set to create the show, but there is currently no release window in place.

We can't wait to see which actors take on the other iconic roles from the doco!
