The case recently gained renewed worldwide attention following Baskin's participation in the Netflix docuseries, Tiger King, which made her a household name.

What Happened to Don Lewis will feature Dateline correspondent Josh Mankiewicz's report on Lewis, who vanished in 1997 while preparing for a trip to Costa Rica. Baskin has denied any wrongdoing and has never been charged with anything related to her husband's disappearance.

The one-hour special will include never-before-seen footage of Dateline's interview with Baskin in 1998 about her animal park. At the time, she described the last day she saw Lewis alive, telling Dateline:"My husband left early in the morning and said that he wanted me to get a truck ready, that he was gonna be driving down to Miami to put on the freight cargo down to Costa Rica the next day." She added: "When he didn't come home the rest of the night, then we turned him in as a missing person. And we haven't seen or heard anything since then."
