Ever since Dick Wolf created it in 1990, the “Law & Order” franchise has mined real-life situations for its fictional detective fodder.

In fact, as Business Insider noted, the second episode of the original series was based on Bernhard Goetz, better known as “The Subway Vigilante,” who became famous for shooting four alleged muggers on the New York City subway in 1984. Eliot Spitzer, Casey Anthony, Bob Oliva and Ernest Lorch have all been fictionalized on one of the various “Law & Order” series.

Now, Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, will join those hallowed ranks.

“Law & Order: SVU,” the spinoff series that focuses on crimes of a sexual nature, will feature a Trump-themed episode titled, appropriately, “Unstoppable,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

It will feature actor Gary Cole – perhaps best known for his role as the man responsible for teaching us all how to pronounce “Nevada” as Kent Davidson on “Veep” – as a politician “whose campaign goes haywire when several women go public with damaging accusations.”

That might sound familiar. Last week The Washington Post published a video shot by “Access Hollywood” in 2005 in which Trump is seen and heard bragging to the show’s then co-host Billy Bush about the ease with which he can “grab them by the p—.” And just recently, Tasha Dixon, Miss Arizona of 2001, said that Trump walked in on Miss USA contestants in 2001 in various states of undress, using his status as the pageant’s owner to gain access to the women backstage in their dressing rooms as they were changing clothes.

The coming episode shouldn’t be a complete surprise. After all, showrunner Rick Eid told the Hollywood Reporter in September, “It is possible we may try to explore a story involving some sort of brash demagogue with political ambitions.”

The episode will also feature guest stars Currie Graham, Meredith Travers, Bianca Amato and returning guest Peter Gallagher.

It will air on Wednesday, Oct. 26 – less than two weeks before Election Day on Nov. 8 .
