Law & Order: SVU is made by NBC, the network that also airs Access Hollywood, from which the 2005 footage of Trump talking about touching women without their consent was taken.

NBC says they decided to delay airing the episode after the recent allegations of sexual assault emerged. Eight women have accused Trump of sexual assault, including Summer Zervos, who was a contestant on NBC’s The Apprentice, on which Trump also appeared. Trump has denied the allegations.

The SVU episode, called Unstoppable, was written some time ago by showrunner Rick Eid and writer Julie Martin. The script was vetted by Law & Order production company, Wolf Entertainment and NBC, and modifications to soften the character were questioned by some castmembers who have been open on social media about their dislike of Trump.

Parts of the story are believed to have been inspired by a pending civil lawsuit in New York by a woman who alleges Trump raped her when she was 13 in the mid-’90s.Trump’s attorneys have vehemently denied the allegations.

The Law & Order franchise is famous for finding inspiration in real-life news events. SVU has loosely based stories on real life cases such as the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping and Andrew Luster, the heir to the Max Factor fortune who was convicted of multiple sexual assaults. The current season opened with an episode loosely inspired by last year’s shootings in San Bernardino, California.

Production on the episode was completed a month ago. No new air date has been confirmed.
