And Cybill Shepard will be playing Deen!
Law & Order: SVU Executive Producer Warren Leight spoke with Entertainment Weekly about it:
“[Jeffrey] Tambor is a defense attorney representing a very high-profile celebrity woman chef who thought she was being pursued by a rapist and turned around it was a teenager. And she shot him,” said Leight in an interview with EW. “There’s a lot of stop and frisk elements to that as well.”Stop and frisk too?! This is like the World Series of Ripped from the Headlines episodes. A Moveable Feast of Controversy! Remember yesterday when I told you sometimes my job can be a bummer? News like this is why I wake up in the morning.
Cybill Shephard is playing the part of the celebrity chef, and Smash’s Leslie Odom, Jr. is portraying a minister of the slain child in what will be the third episode of the season.
