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.

"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.'"
