Occupy Wall Street has now occupied the set of  Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Members of the movement gathered late Thursday night in New York's Foley Square, where the NBC procedural known for "ripping from the headlines" was reportedly recreating the scene of Occupy Wall Street's former camp in Zucotti Park.

Scoop: Law & Order: SVU swears in Kevin Pollak for guest spot

"Law & Order was using this as a backdrop for some salacious story," a member of the Occupy Wall Street press team  told The Huffington Post. "People did it in the spirit of absurdity and fun, and we like to come together in public space and share ideas and show our vision through our action. ... We're doing that tonight with a good bit of jest and big fat smiles on our faces."

NBC declined to comment, but executive producer Warren Leight responded to the events on Twitter. "Saddened by last night's events," he tweeted. "We understand OWS emotions run high, and also protestors' fear of having their images and history co-opted by corporate media. The irony here is the scene we couldn't shoot portrayed OWS in a sympathetic light and many of the union writers, crew and set builders who worked on prepping the scene are supportive of the movement."

According to MSNBC, no arrests were made and production quickly began breaking down the set.
