Kris Jenner’s gonna love this!
Selma Blair has been cast as the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch in a new TV series. Deadline.com reports, Selma has been cast to play a younger version of Kris on FX miniseries American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
The show will take place during the OJ Simpson trial: Kris Jenner, a friend of Nicole Brown Simpson, was married to OJ’s lawyer, Robert Kardashian Sr.
The story will be told from the point of view of the lawyers/ what happened behind the scenes and “maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s black community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.”
Here’s more from Deadline on what fans can expect:
In the mini, Kris Jenner is the ex-wife of Simpson’s attorney and confidant Robert Kardashian.
They had four children that formed the core of the reality TV juggernaut Keeping Up With The Kardashians: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob. She married Bruce Jenner soon after the divorce. Robert Kardashian died of cancer in 2003.
American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski.
Ryan Murphy is executive producing with fellow American Horror Story co-creator Brad Falchuk, Nina Jacobson & Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. [Deadline]
