Note: This page is about the Miniseries on The Hub. If you're looking for the film, go here. If you're looking for the original board game, go here. Nor does this have anything to do with the British Cluedo Series, which was a Game Show.
Clue is a 5-episode Miniseries based on the board game that debuted on The Hub on November 14, 2011. At a charity event, six teenagers witness what they believe to be a murder, but when they tell the authorities they're surprised that no one believes them. So, the teens decide to solve the mystery themselves.
This series provides examples of:
- Adults Are Useless: Except for when they're in on the conspiracy.
- Badass Damsel: Sarah Ellis
- Batman Gambit
- Big Bad Ensemble: Between Whittaker, who wants to the Tesla device to make a profit, and Kroger, who at least claims to be a Well-Intentioned Extremist.
- Clear My Name: A Lighter and Softer variation. They're not accused of the crime themselves, but the main characters are suspended from school for allegedly pulling a hoax and ruining a charity event. They all try to solve the crime themselves to restore their good standings.
- Color Coded for Your Convenience: Liz's hair is dyed red and most of the other characters wear something of their corresponding color most of the time. A relatively subtle example, but it's there.

- You Should Know This Already: In-series. It was in the bedroom with a candlestick, and the audience sees it happen.
