  • The legal chaos at Fox News activated by the failure of previous employer Roger Ailes has actually supposedly offered fodder for upcoming tv jobs.

    The long-running NBC series Law and Order: SVU will air an episode later on this month where a tv news executive is implicated of raping a secondary female news anchor, inning accordance with The Hollywood Reporter.

    The episode is loosely based upon the scandal surrounding deposed Fox News manager Ailes.

    Ailes was displaced of his job in 2015 after a variety of females stepped forward and implicated him of unwanted sexual advances.

    The executive will be represented on Law and Order: SVU by Christopher McDonald, a character star whose previous credits consist of Thelma and Louise, Happy Gilmore, and Requiem for a Dream.

    The female news anchor will be played by Bonnie Somerville, whose long list of tv credits consist of supporting functions on NYPD Blue, Friends, and The O.C.

    Mark Moses, who was on Mad Men, will play Somerville’s co-anchor.
