Kim Kardashian is expanding her acting resume with a starring role in Ryan Murphy’s new legal series.

The Kardashian, who’s acting credits already include her performance as Siobhan in American Horror Story: Delicate, will play a high-powered divorce lawyer who leads an all-female law firm in Los Angeles.

Kim has not only had experience with a divorce lawyer of her own, Laura Wassel (who she’s also reportedly planning to base her character on) but is currently studying to take the bar exam in real life.

The drama series has already been picked up by Hulu, and according to Deadline, will be a “a high-end, glossy and sexy adult procedural.”
