NBC’s Law & Order franchise has had some fun taking swipes at the right — from the Tea Party to conservative talkers — but an upcoming episode of Law & Order SVU was set to revolve around the Occupy Wall Street protests.

It’s unlikely that the script calls for OWS to be cast in a negative light, but we may never know. As it turns out, Law & Order SUV’s “Occupy” set was… occupied:

More than 100 Occupy Wall Street demonstrators stormed the set for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” across from the Manhattan State Supreme Courthouse, shutting down production of an OWS-themed episode.

“We made it so that they could not exploit us and that’s awesome,” said Tammy Schapiro, 29, of Brooklyn.

The protesters arrived around midnight at Foley Square and roamed around the park inspecting tents and signs built by the production company.

“This is not us,” said Drew Hornbein, 24, of Brooklyn Heights. “We are not part of corporate TV America.”
After midnight, a police officer on a bullhorn announced that the film permit had been rescinded by the city, which drew cheers from the crowd.

The empathetic upper one-percent’s Hollywood dramatization of the Revolution will not be televised.
