Netflix has shared the trailer of its upcoming UNTOLD film, Operation Flagrant Foul.

Directed by David Terry Fine, Operation Flagrant Foul follows the story of the former referee and Tim Donaghy — the NBA‘s biggest scandal that scratched the surface of sports gambling and organized crime:

“In the summer of 2007, news broke that an NBA referee was being investigated for gambling on his own games, igniting a media storm and sending the NBA, FBI and sports fans into crisis. That referee was Tim Donaghy and the story didn’t just start and end with him, but wound its way from the small town bookies of the Philadelphia suburbs to lining the pockets of the notorious New York crime families and worldwide sports gambling underworld. For the first time, all three co-conspirators discuss their involvement and, unsurprisingly, their stories don’t all line-up. Featuring revealing sit-down interviews with Tim Donaghy, Tommy Martino, Jimmy “The Sheep” Battista plus FBI agent Phil Scala, Donaghy’s lawyer John Lauro, Donaghy’s ex-wife Kim Strupp Donaghy, and more.”

Donaghy was a referee for 13 seasons from 1994 to 2007, and eventually pleaded to two federal charges in July 2008. He served 11 months in federal prison and the rest of his sentence in a halfway house, returned to prison when he violated his release terms and was released in November 2009.

Watch the trailer above. UNTOLD: Operation Flagrant Foul premieres August 30.
