AceShowbiz - Kim Kardashian is set to expand her acting career. The 43-year-old "The Kardashians" star will be playing famed lawyer Laura-Wasser-inspired character on a new scripted series, which will be executive produced by herself and mom Kris Jenner.
According to Deadline, Kim has been tapped to play a character who is described as Los Angeles' "most successful divorce lawyer and the owner of an all-female law firm." Playing a lawyer should be exciting for the mom of four as she's been passionate about following in her father Robert Kardashian's footsteps as a lawyer.
Meanwhile, the upcoming legal series will be written by "Brothers & Sisters" creator and playwright Jon Robin Baitz alongside Joe Baken. Ryan Murphy will serve as executive producer alongside Kris. Meanwhile, it is reported that the planned series will be streamed on Hulu, the current home of "The Kardashians".
This won't be the first time for Kim to work together with Ryan. The two previously collaborated on the latter's hit TV series "American Horror Story: Delicate". On the FX series, Kim played Siobhan, a cutthroat publicist for Emma Roberts' character Anna.
While casting sparked criticism among fans who were skeptical over the reality TV star's acting skills, Ryan defended the casting at the time. He said in a statement, "Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the 'AHS' family."
He added, "Emma and I are excited about collaborating with this true force in the culture. Halley Feiffer has written a fun, stylish and ultimately terrifying role especially for Kim, and this season is ambitious and unlike anything we have ever done."
No other details are available about the new series, but the filming is reportedly set to start in late 2024 for an early 2025 premiere date.
