Coming Up on ‘SVU’: A ‘Ripped-From-the-Donald-Trump-Headlines’ Episode

Oct 12, 2016  •  Post A Comment

NBC’s hit drama “Law & Order: SVU” will dare to tiptoe around the current election landscape with an episode that Deadline.com describes as “ripped-from-the-Donald-Trump-headlines.”

The episode, titled “Unstoppable,” stars Gary Cole as “a big galoot,” as Deadline puts it, with presidential ambitions. “He’s contemplating a change of address to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W. for eight years, only some women with sordid stories are trying to thwart him from moving on up,” the story reports.

Beyond that, we don’t have much in the way of details, other than the suggestion from Deadline that the character is most definitely NOT Donald Trump, but if you want to make comparisons, that’s up to you.

The episode is set to air Oct. 26 — a week after the final Clinton-Trump debate and the night before the start of the November sweeps period, the report notes.

  1. Wow, I thought SVU would have had a storyline years ago that would have starred Alec Baldwin as a character occupying the Oval Office who most definitely is NOT Bill Clinton…BUT, if we’d like to make comparisons, well…that’s up to us I guess. But…they didn’t. Hard to understand why not. I mean WOW!! Think of all the delicious, salacious details (not to mention ratings) all tied up into a neat little bow as “Liv” gets her man in the end…
