There's a new diva in town.

Kim Kardashian will have a multi-episode arc on the fourth season on the Lifetime hit Drop Dead Diva, starting with the season premiere, the network confirmed Thursday.

Production will kick off next month and new episodes will premiere this summer.

So, what will the Kourtney & Kim Take New York star's role be in the fantastical dramedy starring Brooke Elliott as a plus-size lawyer who's inhabited by the soul of a dead supermodel?

Kim will play Nikki, a love interest for Ben Feldman's Fred—who, to make things interesting, is going into business with his ex, Stacy (April Bowlby).

"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."

"I am so excited to announce that I'll be guest starring on Drop Dead Diva this summer," Kim wrote on her blog. "I can't wait to get to work with everyone on set!! Xo."

Kim will also play herself on Tim Allen's new ABC sitcom, Last Man Standing, in February.
