How's this for some drama?
Tomorrow night's episode of Law and Order: SVU appears to take its inspiration from one of the biggest entertainment-related stories from the past decade: Chris Brown's 2009 Grammys eve assault on girlfriend Rihanna.
Although NBC has not confirmed that the episode is based on the Brown-Rihanna incident, read the episode's logline and make your own judgment:
"A promising singer is brutally attacked by her boyfriend, a popular hip hop star. ADA Barba (guest star Raul Esparza) works to build a case, but the victim refuses to aid the prosecution and, despite Detective Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) best efforts, continues to put herself in danger. The case quickly spirals into a media circus, perpetrated by both the defendant and his uncompromising attorney (guest star Jeffrey Tambor)."
