Law & Order: SVU Will Tackle The Harvey Weinstein Sexual Harassment Scandal — Get The Details

Watch out Harvey Weinstein, Olivia Benson is coming for you!

Law & Order: SVU will take on Hollywood's sexual harassment scandal in an episode slated to air in 2018. Well, kind of.

Although the Mariska Hargitay-led crime drama will explore rape culture in the workplace, the upcoming hour won't be set in Hollywood. Instead, it will take place in an industry riddled in just as much controversy this year — the airline industry.

Why take to the skies instead of the stars? Because writers on the Dick Wolf procedural were already working on the episode before the Weinstein scandal broke and opened a dialogue on sexual harassment in the workplace.

Exec producer Michael Chernuchin explained to EW:

"We were actually working on a story about airline pilots and what a boys club that is. We were beating the story out and said, ‘Wow, this is exactly what the actresses go through in Hollywood. It's the same environment.' So we got all of our Harvey stuff out with airline pilots."

Sounds like we're in for a bumpy flight when the episode airs next year.
