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.
