PEOPLE has confirmed that the NBC procedural, long known for ripping its plots straight from the headlines, is airing an episode featuring a large family that must confront a "web of secrets."

"Patrimonial Burden," a fictional riff on the Duggars' recent travails, follows conservative reality TV parents whose attempt to raise their 10 children in a "virtuous" lifestyle is challenged when the pregnancy of their 13-year-old daughter exposes them to the scrutiny of the show's police unit.
