88% Tomatometer 32 Reviews 64% Audience Score Fewer than 50 Ratings "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 courtside power struggle escalates between Sterling's ambitious personal assistant, V. Stiviano, and his wife and business partner of 60 years, Shelly.

Critics Consensus

Sordid and soapy as befitting the story of Donald Sterling's fall from grace, Clipped's terrific ensemble brings this memorable cast of real-life characters to vivid life.

Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times “Clipped” is smartly written and worth watching for the performers, also notably including Rich Sommer as Clippers PR man Seth Burton and a dryly funny Corbin Bernsen as Shelly’s lawyer in her various negotiations with Donald... Jul 8, 2024 Full Review Brandon Yu TheWrap Both corny and illuminating... Jul 8, 2024 Full Review Hanif Abdurraqib New Yorker Coleman as Stiviano, though still extreme in her portrayal, offers the most layered character on the show. Jul 8, 2024 Full Review Jon Hart Book & Film Globe Two episodes in, Clipped mostly stays away from on-court basketball action. Excellent move. Jul 8, 2024 Full Review Shawn Laib Den of Geek Clipped’s juxtaposition of watching motivations will be the legacy of the program. Jul 8, 2024 Full Review Greg MacArthur Screen Rant While Clipped captures even the most bizarre true story details of the Donald Sterling fiasco, its lack of cohesive focus overrides its authenticity. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 3, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

Adam S If you get past the fact that everyone besides Lawrence Fishburn was horribly casted, the show's pacing, story, and message are sound and worth the watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/07/24 Full Review Audience Member Terrible cast.. just an ok story. Couldn't watch past episode 3. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/30/24 Full Review Maxwell B I have no interest in the NBA or prior knowledge of the events. It's not a sports show at all really, it's about the behind-the-scenes fallout and lives of people involved in the events rather than the sport itself. It's well-acted and well-written. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/25/24 Full Review Won Hee L Poorly cast and acted. So over the top that hardly any of the characters feel like actual people, rather poorly portrayed carricutures. Documentary would have been more purposeful. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/23/24 Full Review Craig B It was over the top but that is actually how this played out as someone old enough to see it live. The V lady was very odd with the shield and her mannerisms and odd speech, that isn't taking license that is really how she behaved. If anything they might have made Sterling less repulsive than he actually was. But worth a watch if have any interest in the story. Well done and fairly accurate portrayal. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review GENA R Team Shelly...Jacki Jacki Jacki The looks are priceless. She hits her mark without having to say a word Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/11/24 Full Review Read all reviews
