Charlottesville Episode Planned

The recent riots in Charlottesville, Va., are about to get the scripted TV treatment.

Law & Order: SVU is set to tackle the events for an upcoming season 19 episode, showrunner Michael Chernuchin tells The Hollywood Reporter.

The riots began as the "Unite the Right" rally Aug. 11 in the downtown Virginia city. Participants included white supremacists, white nationalists and neo-Nazis, among others, who were protesting the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. Protesters began to clash not only with local authorities, but also with a growing group of counterprotesters. Tensions came to a head the following day when a man linked to white supremacist groups slammed his car into a group of counterprotesters, injuring 14 and killing one, Heather Hayer.

President Donald Trump angered many in the days after the attack when he failed to denounce white supremacy groups in his first statement on the attack and instead cited "violence on many sides."

When asked what made the riots ripe material for SVU, Chernuchin was succinct: "Conflict. It's just the state of the world today with everybody. Everybody's political now and everything is political now and we want to deal with that."
