‘Law & Order: SVU’ Trump-Inspired Episode Pulled from NBC Lineup
NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU,” which is noted for basing episodes on stories ripped from headlines, has shelved the Donald Trump-inspired episode called “Unstoppable.”
The episode which was originally scheduled to air Oct. 26 has been will now be seen sometime after the Nov. 8 election, sources close to the situation confirm.
The decision to reschedule was made Friday afternoon at the network level in light of the torrid atmosphere currently in the political arena.
The continuing real-life drama surrounding the Republican nominee for president and the accounts of women coming forward with stories of Trump’s aggressive sexual advances and assault plays a little too close to the NBC show’s episode, which guest stars Gary Cole (“Veep”) as a controversial candidate embroiled in damaging accusations.
