‘Law & Order: SVU’ To Cover Jay Z & Solange Knowles’ Elevator Fight
The episode is about an NBA star who is accused of rape charges by multiple women. That’s when Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Carisi (Peter Scanavino) investigate! Some of the episode will focus on some security footage from inside the elevator, that’s when you may see similarities to the Solange and Jay Z fight, and the Ray Rice fight.
Warren Leight, the SVU showrunner, tells the Huffington Post, that he wanted to “capture the way these scandals broke.”
“I loved the idea of just a silent black and white scene, then sound goes out,” Leight said. “You kinda wanna know what’s going on.”
You might remember that they also did an episode that was somewhat based on the Chris Brown and Rihanna, assault in 2013.
