(CBS) - The folks at "Law & Order: SVU" are reportedly working up an episode loosely based on Arnold Schwarzenegger's  extramarital activities.

According to TV Line, the episode, to air this fall during the show's 13th season, will feature a storyline inspired by the former California governor's admission that he fathered a child outside his marriage to Maria Shriver with a member of his household staff.

The "SVU" take will involve a 50-something wealthy, philanthropist named Andrew Raines whose affair with someone from the family's inner circle produces a love child.

Plot details of the actual crime part are obviously under warps, but TV Line reports that it will involve the couple's son Tripp.

Earlier this month, Shriver filed for divorce from Schwarzenegger in Los Angeles, two months after the "Terminator" actor publicly confirmed that he fathered a child with the couple's longtime housekeeper Mildred Baena.
