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.
The reality star has been cast as a recurring character on Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva.”
Kardashian will play Nikki, a love interest for Ben Feldman’s Fred.
She will make her debut in the show’s fourth season premiere, slated to air this summer.
The casting follows the recent news that Kardashian will appear on Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” next month.
She’s also made appearances on “90210,” “How I Met Your Mother” and “CSI: NY.
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.
