cobra

Remember how the Bronx Zoo Cobra started a Twitter and some of his tweets were actually pretty great? Like this one: “Does anyone know if the Whole Foods in Columbus Circle sells organic mice?”

Well, we just got a press release from Animal Planet, and it looks like the cobra is about to be made into a reality show star!

The network announced that a television deal has been made with @BronxZoosCobra, set to premiere this Spring. The show will be called “Snake on the Town,” and will premiere as a special two-hour documentary about the newly recaptured, venomous cobra.

What can you expect to see in this TV doc? How about some homemade snake movies, photography, exclusive interviews and even some tear-jerker confessionals! It will also serve as a behind-the-snake style film, chronicling the snake’s rise to fame and his encounters with luminaries like Mayor Michael Bloomberg and twittering with Hollywood A-listers like Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Martin.

“We’re looking for raw, untapped talent,” said Marjorie Kaplan, president of Animal Planet. “We have a triple threat on our hands. @BronxZoosCobra is relatable, audacious and venomous, and you don’t turn your back on a snake like that!”

Oh, and did we mention that today is April 1st and therefore April Fools?

LOL, you all were totally about to DVR that mess.
