*The Law & Order franchise is teeing up its ripped-from-the-headlines approach and aiming it directly at Tiger Woods.
The plot on Wednesday’s show includes a philandering golf star and his club-wielding wife, according to the AP. When police arrive, the bleeding athlete says his spouse was merely attempting to rescue him — in this case, from their swimming pool rather than a wrecked car.
After Woods’ November 2009 car crash, he acknowledged a string of infidelities and his marriage to Elin Nordegren unraveled. 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 Regina Hall, airs 10 p.m. EST Wednesday on NBC.
