    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.
