The most recent scandal surrounding Donald Trump and his attempt at winning the presidency has reportedly inspired the folks at Law and Order: SVU.
The Hollywood Reporter reported Tuesday that the long-running NBC law show is set to have an episode surrounding a politician — who will be played by Gary Cole (Office Space, The Good Wife) — whose political campaign takes a turn for the worse after damaging accusations from women.
Aside from Cole, the episode is set to feature the likes of Currie Graham, Meredith Travers, Bianca Amato, and Peter Gallagher. It will be released just 13 days before the election on October 26.
News of this Law and Order: SVU episode premise come days after the Washington Post released a recording of Trump saying a number of vulgar things while on an Access Hollywood bus with Billy Bush. The scandal has taken over just about every news network and has had lasting effects on the campaign between Trump and Hillary Clinton.
This isn’t the first time SVU has based an episode off of a current event. In fact it’s something of a tradition at this point. This most recent season opened with an episode whose premise was similar to the San Bernardino shootings and also featured an episode with Joe Biden playing himself.
