Next week a familiar story will be highlighted on NBC’s Law and Order SVU. The crime drama will feature a story line that is eerily similar to the on again off again relationship of Chris Brown and Rihanna.
NBC describes the thinly veiled Rihanna and Chris Brown-inspired episode ‘Funny Valentine’ as follows:
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).
Here’s the twist you’ve all been waiting for — someone ends up murdered.
I’m a fan of SVU and I’m looking forward to seeing this one. Check out a sneak preview from the episode.
