BLACKBALLED new Quibi docuseries directed by Michael Jacobs on LA Clippers, Donald Sterling premieres May 11

“Blackballed” is a powerful documentary series that examines the cultural context of race in America through the lens of one of the most explosive events in recent sports history - the Donald Sterling expulsion.

The series highlights the five days during the 2014 NBA playoffs, when Doc Rivers, Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and the LA Clippers led an unprecedented movement of athletes to hold racism accountable.

When Donald Sterling's infamous, racist audio recording was leaked to the press in April 2014, every player, coach and employee of the Los Angeles Clippers was faced with the same question: How do you stand up in the face bigotry and ignorance when the entire world is watching and everything is on the line? 

Now, for the first time, Chris Paul, Doc Rivers, DeAndre Jordan, JJ Redick, and Adam Silver along with some of the biggest names from the worlds of sports, politics, business and media, explain how they asserted their power, leading to the most definitive and unprecedented punishment in sports history.

“BLACKBALLED” is directed by Michael Jacobs and executive produced by Chris Gary and Ryan Simon, Sam Widdoes and Peter Cambor for District 33, Will Packer and Kelly Smith for Will Packer Media, and James Widdoes.
