CULVER CITY, Calif., Jan. 26, 2012 -- Kim Kardashian joins the cast of Lifetime's critically acclaimed Sony Pictures Television series "Drop Dead Diva" for a multiple-episode arc beginning with the season premiere. The show's fourth season is set to begin filming in February, with new episodes premiering this summer.

Kardashian will play Nikki, Fred's (Ben Feldman) new love interest who partners with his ex Stacy (April Bowlby) in a new business venture. Kardashian joins an impressive list of guest stars who have appeared on "Drop Dead Diva" including Liza Minnelli, Rosie O'Donnell, Paula Abdul, Brandy Norwood, LeAnn Rimes, Elliott Gould, Kathy Griffin and Tim Gunn.

"I'm ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family," said creator and executive producer Josh Berman. "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.'"

Kardashian will soon appear in director Tyler Perry's upcoming film, The Marriage Counselor and her previous television credits include "CSI: NY" and "How I Met Your Mother."

"Drop Dead Diva's" third season averaged 2.3 million total viewers, and during its run helped propel Lifetime to the #1 slot on Sundays at 9 p.m. among Women versus all basic cable networks.

"Drop Dead Diva" tells the story of a shallow, aspiring model who dies in a sudden accident, only to find her soul resurfacing in the body of a brilliant, thoughtful and plus-size attorney (Brooke Elliott of Wicked and Taboo). The series also stars Margaret Cho ("Dancing with the Stars," Notorious C.H.O.), Jackson Hurst ("Unforgettable"), Kate Levering ("Cashmere Mafia"), Bowlby ("Two and a Half Men"), Josh Stamberg ("Lie to Me") and Feldman (The Perfect Man).

"Drop Dead Diva" is produced by Sony Pictures Television.
