Tiger King's Carole Baskin and husband Howard Baskin are to host a new unscripted series that will see them expose and confront those guilty of animal exploitation.

Carole Baskin and her current husband Howard Baskin are to front a new show that will expose people and companies engaging in animal cruelty.

The pair gained international fame through the Netflix series Tiger King, which explored the Baskins' work as owners of an animal sanctuary and their fractious relationship with eccentric zookeeper Joe Exotic.

Carole is currently appearing on Dancing With The Stars and according to Variety, she already has her next TV project lined up with the as-yet untitled unscripted series.

Speaking to the publication about the show, which is not yet attached to a broadcaster, the couple said: "This is a chance for us to use our new platform to battle the everyday evils facing big cats and so many other animals.

"This show will help us further our life's mission, while bringing important stories and information to 'cool cats and kittens' across the country."

Adam Reed, chief executive of production company Thinkfactory, said: "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."

In addition to her TV ventures, Carole is currently battling a lawsuit from the family of her ex-husband Don Lewis, who mysteriously vanished in 1997.
