Kim Kardashian to Play a Divorce Lawyer in Ryan Murphy’s Hulu Legal Drama

After starring in Season 12 of “American Horror Story,” Kim Kardashian is making more moves as an actress. She will continue to work with “AHS” co-creator Ryan Murphy, this time in a procedural.

The legal drama has been given a series commitment at Hulu — which also airs reality series “The Kardashians” — and will see Kardashian play a successful divorce lawyer who leads an all-female law firm in Los Angeles. Jon Robin Baitz, the showrunner of the Truman Capote-focused upcoming season of Murphy’s “Feud,” will write the series alongside Joseph Baken, a writer on “AHS” spinoff “American Horror Stories.”

Aside from “Feud: Capote vs. the Swans,” Baitz is best known as the creator of “Brothers & Sisters,” which ran on ABC for five seasons from 2006 to 2011, and developing NBC’s “The Slap” based on the Australian series of the same name. Other writing credits include episodes of “The West Wing” and “Alias” along with the 2015 movie “Stonewall.” Baken wrote two episodes of “American Horror Stories” Season 3, which ran in October. He also wrote and directed the 2021 movie “Mailman.”

Kardashian is also working on a comedy film titled “The Fifth Wheel,” in which she plays the outsider in a group of four other female friends. After a competitive bidding war, the film landed at Netflix in November.

The Kardashian-led Hulu series will be Murphy’s first new Disney project since entering an overall deal with the company in June after exiting his Netflix deal.

Deadline was first to report the news of the series commitment.
