Modern Family star Ed O’Neill is officially on board the upcoming FX sports drama limited series, The Sterling Affairs.  

The six-episode drama series is based on a 30 for 30 podcast of the same name. It will dive behind the scenes into the 2014 Los Angeles Clippers' attempted championship run  

It has now been announced via Deadline that O’Neill would be taking on the role of the famously hated former Clippers owner, Sterling, in the upcoming FX limited series, The Sterling Affairs.  

The forthcoming drama series will mark the actor’s first TV portrayal following Modern Family coming to an end in 2020. 

Ramona Shelburne, who was the reporter and host of the 30 for 30 podcast, The Sterling Affairs, will act as an executive producer on the upcoming six-episode series that is written by Gina Welch.  

Following the success of the controversial HBO sports drama series Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty,  

it is no surprise that other predominant time periods in NBA franchises’ history are being highlighted and distributed in a way that more than just sports fans can be informed of such controversies. 

With no release date currently in sight, The Sterling Affairs is already setting itself up to be an informative sports drama series that fans won’t want to miss.
