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.

Whoopi Goldberg and Virginia Madsen to Guest.
The NBC drama has tapped Virginia Madsen to play mother Beth Anne Rollins, whom showrunner Warren Leight describes as a "very protective" matriarch. "In theory, Amanda Rollins is her successful daughter. [She's] college-educated, a detective, moved to New York, so of course the mother likes the daughter who has a warrant out for her arrest, has been involved with very sketchy men and has run her life into the ground," Leight tells THR. "Beth Anne Rollins thinks that daughter can't make mistake and Amanda has turned her back on the family."
