Kim Kardashian has won a recurring role on a TV show
The reality star will appear in the fourth season of drama-comedy `Drop Dead Diva` - which stars Brooke D`Orsay as a lawyer who has inhabited the soul of a dead supermodel - and will begin production next month.
She is in line play Nikki, who is a love interest for Ben Feldman`s alter-ego Fred, and her character is set to go into business with Stacy, who is played by former `Two and a Half Men` beauty April Bowlby.
Kim wrote on her blog: "I am so excited to announce that I`ll be guest starring on `Drop Dead Diva` this summer. I can`t wait to get to work with everyone on set!"
Josh Berman, creator and executive producer of the programme, felt Kim`s "humour and passion" made her the right person for the role.
He explained: "I`m ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family.
"In discussing the role of Nikki with her, I`m blown away by her smarts, sense of humor, and passion. This series is all about reinvention and I`m so excited to see Kim `reinvented` in the world of `Drop Dead Diva`."
The `Keeping Up With The Kardashians` beauty previously starred in `Beyond the Break` and had a guest role in `CSI: NY.`
