Kate McKinnon embraces animal prints and says “hello” to all the “cool cats and kittens” as she transforms into Carole Baskin for an upcoming TV series.

The “Saturday Night Live” star was discovered as the big cat rescue reserve owner for the first time while filming scenes for the show on Australia’s Gold Coast.

While Netflix’s “Tiger King” documentaries made headlines last year, the new series based on the Wondery podcast centers on the rivalry between Baskin and Joe Exotic, which ultimately led to a murder-for-rent plot that landed the so-called Tiger King in jail.

Podcast synopsis also highlights Baskin’s “checkered past,” claiming “when the claws come out, Joe stops at nothing to reveal what he sees as her hypocrisy.”
