Is Kim Kardashian set to become a sitcom star?
The ubiquitous reality TV personality is developing a scripted comedy, Gossip Cop confirms.
A source close to Kardashian tells us that a project is “in the works.”
Kardashian has already been branching out into non-reality material, making a guest appearance on ABC’s “Last Man Standing” and being part of the cast in Tyler Perry’s upcoming The Marriage Counselor.
While Kardashian is currently developing a sitcom, nothing has been shot yet and time will tell whether the project gets picked up for broadcast.
Kardashian, newly single, will be playing herself in an episode scheduled to air some time in February, as TV Line first reported. The episode sees reality TV addict Mandy (Molly Ephraim) running into her idol, Kardashian.
In November, ABC officially ordered a full season of the freshman half-hour sitcom, which marked Allen’s return to the small screen. Several weeks later, Last Man Standing tapped a new showrunner.
Currently, Kardashian can be seen on E!’s Kourtney & Kim Take New York, chronicling the lead-up to her breakup to NBA player Kris Humphries.
Kim Kardashian, who split last month from New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush, is about to contend with more NFL dating rumors – but this time willingly – when she tapes a guest appearance on the new FOX sitcom Brothers, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.
In the episode, set to be filmed in a few weeks and to air in October, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 28, plays herself as she confronts former football star Michael Trainor – played by real ex-New York Giant Michael Strahan – about rumors that the two have enjoyed a secret tryst.
Brothers, which also stars Daryl “Chill” Mitchell, CCH Pounder and Carl Weathers, premieres Sept. 25 on FOX.
Adding to the sense of reality on the October episode, Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell makes a cameo appearance as herself – chasing down news of the supposed affair between Kardashian and Trainor.
