Reality television star Kim Kardashian will turn to acting in an upcoming season of FX network's anthology series “American Horror Story”, co-creator Ryan Murphy said on Monday.

The novel, due for release in August, is described in online advertisements as a “thriller that follows a woman convinced a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens”.

Author Andrea Bartz calls it a “feminist update to ‘Rosemary's Baby’.”

Murphy said “American Horror Story” writer Halley Feiffer had crafted “a fun, stylish and ultimately terrifying role especially for Kim, and this season is ambitious and unlike anything we have ever done”.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.

Kardashian became a pop culture phenomenon during her 14 years with her sisters on the reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, which ended in 2021. The extended Kardashian family now appears on “The Kardashians” on Hulu.

As an actress, she has appeared in “Disaster Movie” (2008), “Deep in the Valley” (2009) and “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor” (2013). She also did voiceover work for “Paw Patrol: The Movie” (2021) and hosted “Saturday Night Live”.

FX network is owned by Walt Disney Co.
