The Law & Order franchise is teeing up its notorious Ripped-From-the-Headlines approach and aiming it squarely at shamed golfer Tiger Woods.
The plot on Wednesday night’s edition of Law & Order: Los Angeles includes a philandering golf star and his club-wielding wife. When police arrive on the scene, the bleeding athlete says his spouse was merely attempting to rescue him â€” in this case, from their swimming pool rather than a wrecked car.
Sound familiar? It should.
After Woods’ bizarre car crash in Nov. 2009, the womanizing golfer acknowledged a string of infidelities and his marriage to Elin Nordegren soon crumbled. The NBC crime drama goes in a very different direction, with detectives investigating the murder of a female golf pro.
Law & Order: Los Angeles, co-starring Terrence Howard and Alfred Molina, airs 10 PM EST Wednesday on NBC.
