Kim Kardashian is teaming up once more with Ryan Murphy for her upcoming significant role. The 43-year-old star of The Kardashians will take on the dual role of lead actor and executive producer in a new legal drama on Hulu, developed by 58-year-old Murphy.
This project marks their second collaboration, with Kardashian currently showcasing her talents in Murphy's American Horror Story: Delicate, the 12th installment of the horror anthology series co-created by Murphy and Brad Falchuk in 2011.
A Legal Dynasty Unleashed
Kim Kardashian is set to take on the role of a leading Los Angeles divorce lawyer who owns an all-female law firm in a new Hulu legal drama. The series, described as a "high-end, glossy, and sexy adult procedural," will see Kardashian's mother and manager, Kris Jenner, join as an executive producer alongside Ryan Murphy.
With production scheduled to commence in late 2024, the show is anticipated to premiere in early 2025, as reported by Deadline. Notably, Hulu is also the streaming home for the Kardashians' self-titled reality series, which made its debut in 2022. Kardashian had previously gained fame alongside her family on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Beyond her iconic reality TV career, Kim Kardashian has left her mark on various TV shows and movies throughout the years. Her diverse roles include appearances on "How I Met Your Mother," "CSI: NY," "Drop Dead Diva," and the Paw Patrol film series.
However, her role in "American Horror Story: Delicate" stands out as her most significant to date. In this season, she portrays the best friend and publicist of Emma Roberts' character, Anna Victoria Alcott. Kardashian's powerful debut in the season 12 premiere in September featured an NSFW opening line, showcasing her character's assertive and unapologetic demeanor.
Her impending portrayal as a lawyer on screen aligns with her real-life ambitions, reflecting the journey of the Skims co-founder, who has been actively pursuing her legal studies since 2018. Speaking at the 2023 Time100 Summit in April, she disclosed, "I'm probably going to take the bar in February 2025," acknowledging the challenges with a pass rate around 36 percent.
