Felicity Huffman's alleged involvement in a school admissions scheme appears to have been predicted in an episode of "Desperate Housewives."
Oscar-nominated actress became the star on Tuesday after she and her actress Lori Loughlin were charged with fraud and conspiracy along with dozens of others in a scam that, according to federal prosecutors, has saw rich parents pay bribes to get their children in the nation's best colleges.
The character of Huffman in the ABC television series "Desperate Housewives" did something similar to what he is accused of in the fifth episode of the first season of the series.
In the episode, the character of Huffman, Lynette Scavo discusses with her husband Tom how their twin sons would enter a private elite school. The two decide that they should make a contribution to the school to let them in. BuzzFeed was the first to report on the coincidence.

"A generous donation will ensure our kids to beat them," said Lynette to Tom.
"How much?" Tom asked his wife.
"$ 15,000," she replied.
The fictitious couple pull out the money after selling Tom's boat.

Court documents stated that a witness who collaborated met Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, at their Los Angeles home and explained to them that he "controlled" a test center and could have someone that secretly changed her daughter's answers. The person told investigators that the couple accepted the plan.
Huffman was arrested on Tuesday before being released on a $ 250,000 bond. Macy was not charged.
