Law and Order SVU Season 18 NBC Pulls Donald Trump-Inspired Episode Until After Election

NBC has reversed course and benched a planned Donald Trump-inspired episode of “Law & Order: SVU” until after the election. Sources said NBC brass made the decision Friday afternoon amid the extraordinary atmosphere of at least four women coming forward with stories of groping or sexual assault against the Republican nominee for president. Trump has steadfastly denied each of the women’s accounts, accusing them of lying as part of a politically motivated effort to smear him in the final weeks of the fractious presidential race. “Unstoppable” features a Donald Trump-esque character running for president who gets tangled up in a sordid case when several women come forward with damaging accusations. There are other elements of the storyline that make the episode extremely touchy to air in the current climate.

    Like its sister series Law & Order, SVU episodes are often advertised as being "ripped from the headlines". Many people mistake this to mean that they are based on real events. In reality, the slogan is referring to the show's practice of coming up with stories that are partially inspired by recent headlines. However, only a fairly small portion of the episode will resemble the real incident or incidents that it is inspired by. There might be a few scenes that resemble a well known headline while the majority of the episode goes in a different direction or there could be one character that is based on a famous individual but the circumstances the person encounters are largely made up.
