Next week’s "Law and Order: Special Victim’s Unit" episode may sound so familiar that you may think it’s a repeat.

It’s not.

The popular NBC show appears to be tackling the Jerry Sandusky case. The episode airing Wednesday focuses on a sexual abuse scandal at a private school. Detectives discover decades of secrets and face off against the school’s administrators. The story has many parallels to the Penn State scandal.

Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted earlier this year of sexually abusing young boys. He’s currently serving a 30- to 60-year sentence.
