*Meagan Good and “The Walking Dead” actor Chad Coleman will play a couple in an abusive relationship in a sweeps episode of NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU,” it was announced Tuesday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Coleman will play a former sports-star-turned-reporter who is accused of assaulting his girlfriend (Good). Despite photographic evidence of the abuse, the case becomes complicated when the couple tries to keep the charges under the radar.

“Domestic violence, with a push from [star] Mariska Hargitay’s No More campaign, has recently sparked a long-needed national dialogue,” said executive producer Warren Leight. ” ‘Spousal Privilege’ explores the personal and legal complexities of this intractable problem. We are thrilled that Chad and Meagan are joining us to take on this challenging episode.”

The episode, titled “Spousal Privilege,” will premiere on Nov. 19.

*MTV has added two new unscripted series: “Broke A$$ Game Show” and the Scooter Braun-produced docuseries “Todrick,” starring YouTube personality Todrick Hall, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

“Game Show,” launching with eight half-hour episodes from Core Media Group division B-17 Entertainment, borrows from Billy Eichner’s “Billy on the Street” and hits the streets of New York City, luring unsuspecting contestants to push the limits for cash. David Magidoff and Derek Gaines will host and present people with challenges and irreverent games, offering cash in exchange for what MTV says is “contestants’ dignity.”

Todrick, meanwhile, will use its eight half-hour episodes to put the spotlight on Hall, taking viewers into the making of his weekly YouTube videos. The docuseries will focus on Hall and his faithful crew as they write, choreograph, style and direct full-scale productions every week — all while balancing side jobs to pay the bills — to try to make their dreams come true on their own terms.

“Broke A$$ Game Show and Todrick have only one thing in common — they each have incredibly fresh and fun creative forces behind them,” said MTV president of programming Susanne Daniels. “We love the hilariously imaginative, unusual games in Broke A$$, and we’re excited to bring Todrick’s tenacious energy and multidimensional talent to MTV for his first-ever series.”

Amber, 31, responded: “@wizkhalifa Thank u Sweetheart #StillLoveYouNoMatterWhat.”

Mo’ne Davis Stars in New Chevy Ad; Will it Ruin Her NCAA Status? (Watch)

Mo’ne Davis stars in an ad for Chevrolet

*Viewers of the World Series Tuesday night got an unexpected surprise during a commercial break when Chevrolet debuted its new Spike Lee-directed spot starring Mo’ne Davis, the 13-year-old who became a national sensation while pitching in the Little League World Series.

Within seconds, social media began wondering whether her paid appearance in the ad would render her ineligible to play NCAA sports given that college athletes are not allowed to profit from their name, image and likeness. During the Little League World Series, the 13-year old Davis said her dream was to play college basketball for the UConn women’s team.

The NCAA moved quickly to squash the uncertainty. Shortly after the ad ran, the organization released a statement saying the commercial would not impact Davis’ amateur status.

“Since January, NCAA Division 1 membership gave staff more flexibility to consider unique circumstances when determining eligibility,” according to the statement, which was not attributed to a specific person. “The NCAA staff’s decision was made within this process and based on a combination of considerations. This waiver narrowly extends the rules – which allow Davis to accept the payment and still be eligible in any other sport – to include baseball. The NCAA staff also considered the historically limited opportunities for women to participate in professional baseball. In addition, Davis is much younger than when the vast majority of the prospect rules apply. While this situation is unusual, the flexible approach utilized in this decision is not.”

In other words, notes USA Today, “the NCAA staff used some latitude within the rules – and arguably some common sense – to determine that a 13-year old who gained fame playing Little League baseball is not necessarily related to eligibility for an NCAA-sanctioned sport. It’s not even clear whether Davis is or will become a prospect whose skills merit being recruited by UConn or any other women’s basketball program.”

T.I. Explains His Role in Ending Snoop/Iggy Azalea Beef (Watch)

TI mtv news

*In an interview with MTV News, T.I. explains that he “didn’t make Snoop [Dogg]” end his social media assault on Iggy Azalea.

“I have a huge amount of admiration and love and respect for [Snoop] and what he’s done for the game,” T.I. said.

The Atlanta artist added that he decided to step in only after the situation “became a public topic of discussion, when it stopped being between two people and it was being observed by the world now — and it was almost like people were tuning in to see just what was happening next.”

“Me and Snoop have a longstanding personal and professional relationship,” T.I. noted. This made their conversation easy: “When I called him, it was a very, very cordial and respectful… and he immediately said he knew what I was calling about and just assured me, ‘Man there’s nothing even to worry about.’ And we started talking about something else immediately.”

T.I. stressed that Snoop acted of his own will. He told MTV, “I didn’t ask, request, or demand for any post to be put up or apology to be extended, he did all of that out of the kindness and the goodness of his own heart.”

T.I. also said that the media plays a role in the situation escalating.

“People who promote propaganda, it benefits them and their ratings to keep up controversy, but that wasn’t the case at all.”
