In the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode “Unintended Consequences,” the team investigates when a teenage girl is found dead in the East Village. Her cause of death appears to be a drug overdose but it could also be a homicide. NYPD Detectives Tutuola (Ice T) and Carisi (Peter Scanavino) pay a visit to the rehab center where the girl was last seen alive. They are greeted by Dr. Dennis Barkley and social worker Rosemary Taylor (Annie Corley). Turns out Barkley’s cure for troubled teen girls “is worse than the disease” of drug addiction.
Dr. Barkley is portrayed by Peter Scolari. He’s known for his roles on Girls (Lena Dunham’s father Tad), Madoff (Peter Madoff), Gotham (Commissioner Loeb), Newhart (Michael Harris), and Bosom Buddies (Henry/Hilde) with Tom Hanks, among many others. Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesdays at 9pm on NBC, right before Chicago P.D.
