Kim Kardashian is negotiating her salary as an actress through Kris Jenner, her mother and manager, while the rest of the actors in the cast are already being sought: four women to play the other lawyers at the firm and an actor to play the man with whom she will have a romantic tension in fiction. Hulu has already purchased a first season but, as it is still in development and has no cast, its premiere is expected in early 2025.
With this movement, a new stage is confirmed for Kim Kardashian, who in her youth made a name for herself in the tabloid press as a celebrity, being the daughter of a media lawyer, to become a reality television star with the reality show The Kardashians. establish himself as a fashion reference, and build a business empire linked to his power as an influencer.

He has also signed fictions such as American crime story, Feud, Vigilante or Dahmer. In parallel, Kardashian sold a film to Netflix in November, the comedy The Fifth Wheel written by Janine Brito and Paula Pell, in which she will also star.
