NBC Pulls the Donald Trump-Inspired Episode of ‘Law & Order: SVU’ From Its Schedule
The episode, which centers around politician whose campaign is rocked when several women go public with damaging claims of sexual abuse, has been removed from the NBC schedule indefinitely. According to People, the network made the change just a week before Trump was elected President of the United States. Currently, two episodes — titled “Unstoppable” and “Great Expectations” — have been put on hold until an unspecified air date in 2017.
As previously reported, the hour-long episode was put into production after a leaked audio recording of Trump bragging about grabbing women by the genitals surfaced online. The installment guest starred Gary Cole as the controversial politician in the center of a sex scandal. Currie Graham, Bianca Amato, and Peter Gallagher were also included in the lineup.
The episode was originally set to air Nov. 26.
