Law & Order: SVU is taking on Duggar family drama in Wednesday's episode and series star Ice-T gave ET a preview of what viewers can expect.

The episode centers on a fictitious mega-family who becomes famous for raising their kids in a "virtuous" lifestyle on reality television.

"All that stuff just makes me laugh," Ice-T told ET last week at Paley Center for Media's Tribute to African-American Achievements in Television. "You know, 'cause it's loosely based off reality."

The episode, titled "Patrimonial Burden," shows scandal hitting the fictitious Duggar-inspired family, when one of their young teenage daughters becomes pregnant out of wedlock.

"They just use it as a starting point of the story," the TV star said of using the Duggars as inspiration. The reality family has been the source of real-life scandal all year, after news broke in May that eldest son Josh Duggar had molested five minor girls -- including two of his sisters -- as a teenager.

The molestation scandal led to the cancellation of the Duggar's TLC reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, but later in the year, even more scandal hit the family when Josh was implicated in the Ashley Madison hack and admitted to being "unfaithful" to wife Anna.

"They can't go directly by the story, or you guys would know how it's gonna end!" Ice-T added of their Duggar-inspired ep. "So, we gotta twist it."
