"LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT" "AMERICAN DISGRACE" EPISODE SYNOPSIS
BARBA (RAUL ESPARZA) TRIES A PRO BASKETBALL STAR ON SERIAL RAPE CHARGES
Basketball superstar Shakir “The Shark” Wilkins (guest star Henry Simmons) announces his partnership with the Orion Bay clothing line, owned by billionaire Orion Bauer (guest star Stacy Keach) and his daughter Cordelia (guest star Teri Polo). But the SVU intervenes when Orion press rep Carla Cannon (guest star Kelley Missal) tells reporters she was raped by Wilkins. When more women come forward, Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Detective Carisi (guest star Peter Scanavino) disagree on the authenticity of each woman’s story, and Barba (Raul Esparza) takes a shaky case to court. Meanwhile, the case takes Rollins (Kelli Giddish) to her former precinct in Atlanta, where ex-colleagues bring up old memories. Also starring Ice-T (Detective Odafin Tutuola). Also guest starring Elizabeth Marvel (Counselor Rita Calhoun), Lakisha May (Tiana), Patricia Noonan (Macie-Lynn), Myk Watford (Captain Sam Reynolds) and Sandy Duncan (Judge Virginia Farrell).

Mariska Hargitay is taking a seat Inside the Actors Studio.
In the episode, Hargitay describes what it was like to grow up as the daughter of Hollywood couple JayneMansfield and MickeyHargitay and how this affected her when she auditioned for acting roles.
She also talks about working with George Clooney andAnthony Edwards onER, why she was drawn to her current role as Olivia Benson, and how her character has impacted her own life, including inspiring her to establish The Joyful Heart Foundation, which she founded in 2004 with the mission to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse and to shed light on the darkness that surrounds these issues.
Of her thoughts upon reading the pilot script for SVU: “The fact that they were doing a show about sex crimes and things that people continually sweep under the carpet, I thought, ‘That’s a show that I want to be on, that’s a show that is going to talk about issues that nobody wants to talk about,’ and it did … and boy am I glad I’m on it.”
The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive look at the episode below.
In addition, Hargitay has added the role of producer to her SVU duties.
"Mariska has, in many ways, been functioning as a producer on ‘SVU’ for a long time," said Warren Leight, executive producer and showrunner of SVU. “She’s as active behind the scenes as she is on camera, and her new producer title just acknowledges that reality.”
