The murder of George Floyd, a 46-year-old American, by the Minneapolis police. The horrific death of the black man was reccorded by people present at the scene and it went viral creating a huge outcry from across the world. Many protests erupted across the United States against the police brutality against black men. 

Many celebrities have come forward in support of the protest and have spoken against the racism of police forces in the US. Now, Law & Order: SVU showrunner Warren Leight has said that the series police crime drama will address the systematic racism in the police force. 

In a popular podcast, Leight said, "This show always is of the moment. It has to come up, and it will." He added, "We will find our way in to tell the story, and presumably our cops will still be trying to do the right thing, but it's going to be harder for them and they are going to understand why it's harder for them."

Law & Order: SVU, a spinoff of Law & Order, is one of the long-running US series. It even surpassed the record of Law & Order, which ran for 20 seasons.

The show follows the story of Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and her colleagues in the NYPD's Special Victims Unit.
