Official trailer for the FX & HULU

“Clipped” goes behind the scenes of a notorious NBA owner’s racist remarks that were captured on tape and heard around the world. Based on the hit “ESPN 30 for 30” podcast “The Sterling Affairs,” the limited series charts the collision between a dysfunctional basketball organization and even less functional marriage, and the tape’s impact on an ensemble of characters striving to win against the backdrop of the most cursed team in the league. Famed coach Doc Rivers arrives as coach of the LA Clippers in 2013, and with a promising roster of big personalities, he has the building blocks to win the franchise’s first championship. The team’s owner, Donald Sterling, is a well-known problem, but minimizing his influence to win a title becomes a personal quest for Doc. Meanwhile, a court side power struggle escalates between Sterling’s ambitious personal assistant, V. Stiviano, and his wife and business partner of 60 years, Shelly.
