The episode is directed by series star Mariska Hargitay and airs March 19.

NBC says Hargitay's character, police Sgt. Olivia Benson, goes "head to head" with the writer played by Baldwin when his reporting interferes with the investigation.

Baldwin has had run-ins with photographers and said in a wide-ranging article for New York magazine that he despises the media and intends to reclaim his privacy.
