Here’s the trailer for the Paula Deen/Trayvon Martin episode of SVU, because nothing can be a national news event without Law & Order putting their Mariska Hartigay and Chris Meloni all over it. Yaaaaaaay pop culture.
Oh, and of course, there are some sexual assaults thrown in, because it can’t be a Law & Order: SVU episode without shoehorning in some form of sexual assault. As the official synopsis states:
A string of rapes on the Upper West Side raises concerns across the city, and while Detectives Tutuola (Ice-T) and Rollins (Kelli Giddish) question everyone who fits the suspect’s description, celebrity chef Jolene Castille (Cybill Shepherd) fears she’s the next victim when someone follows her home. The SVU arrests her for shooting and killing the unarmed teen, and her attorney (Jeffrey Tambor) faces off against ADA Barba (Raúl Esparza) in a trial that tests the limits of the jury’s moral and legal responsibilities.
Good job, SVU; you out-SVU’d yourself.
