Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which has aired several episodes over the years inspired by real-life events, is now in its 17th season, which will have an episode featuring a spin on the reality series The Bachelor

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the episode will feature a fictional reality dating show called Heart's Desire and will focus on the behind-the-scenes drama of the series, as well as the marriage of the show's creators.

In the past, SVU has imitated the likes of the Casey Anthony trial (featuring Hilary Duff, of all people), mob activity in New York City, the Duggar family from TLC's 19 Kids and Counting and the domestic violence case of NFL running back Ray Rice, among many other examples. 

It's unclear when The Bachelor-themed episode will air, but SVU will return to NBC for its 17th season on March 23 at 9 p.m.
