The Bakers, the stars of America's top reality TV show, are rocked by scandal when 13-year-old daughter Lane is discovered to be three months pregnant. Ultra-conservative parents Pam and Frank resist SVU involvement in a misguided attempt to shield their 10 children - and their lucrative TV empire - from disgrace. However, when Lane accuses one of the show's cameramen of raping her, one who happens to have already had a vasectomy, it becomes clear the Bakers are trying to protect someone. Unable to aid in the inquiry due to her own pregnancy, Rollins decides to make good use of her time away from the beat to binge-watch the Bakers' show in an effort to identify potential suspects. Crime drama, starring Mariska Hartigay.
