In the episode, Coleman will be portraying a former sports star turned reporter who stands accused of attacking his girlfriend, Good. Things then become a little bit more complicated for the Special Victims Unit team as they investigate because the couple, despite the visual evidence presented, tries their best to keep the entire incident quiet. According to Deadline, executive producer Warren Leight said that the episode would also tackle the problems that arise both personally and legally in these kinds of issues. In this case, the issue of domestic violence within sports.
As most of the storylines and plots of the show’s episodes are based on real-life events and incidents, this episode is primarily based on an incident in September of this year, when football player Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens was caught punching his fiance in an elevator on TMZ. This brought about the issue of domestic violence within sports and led to the termination of his contract with the Baltimore Ravens, including an indefinite suspension by the National Football League.
