The acclaimed program, titled The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, was released in 2016 and explored the case of the athlete, who was accused of killing his partner, Nicole Brown Simpson in 1994.
Sarah Paulson led a star-studded cast alongside Sterling K Brown, John Travolta and Cuba Gooding Jr, while Friends icon David Schwimmer played Kris Jenner’s ex-husband, lawyer Robert Kardashian Sr.
In the latest episode of the Kardashians, the Skims owner could be seen informing her siblings that she had landed a coveted role in Ryan’s latest series, American Horror Story, opposite Emma Roberts.
‘I’ve never even told you. I decided I’m going to do a TV show, Ryan Murphy’s show, called American Horror Story,’ she said, revealing that she met the producer over dinner at her mom’s house.
‘He kept saying, “I really want you to do American Horror Story.”’

‘He did the OJ show, which I thought was so fascinating. Remember that OJ series?’
Kourtney Kardashian replied: ‘Yeah. Where Ross played dad?’
Kim then shared her concerns about the program, admitting: ‘I’m very nervous because I’m just not an actress. I think it’s just fun to try something new.
‘I just want new energy, I said every year I was going to try to do something that was a challenge, workwise.’

American Crime Story received rave reviews when it hit the small screen in 2016, and took home a string of Emmy Awards – including outstanding limited series and acting trophies for Sterling, Sarah and Courtney B Vance, who starred as Johnnie Cochran.
Selma Blair had a small role as matriarch Kris, while Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob were also portrayed as youngsters in minor scenes.
Khloe previously praised those behind the scenes for how well they represented her late dad, but also criticized some of the inaccuracies.
‘I’ve seen bits and pieces of the miniseries, I know it’s phenomenal,’ she said during an appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden at the time. ‘They’ve done a great job. I really appreciate the way they’ve portrayed my father. I’m very grateful for that.

‘I haven’t watched it fully, Kimberly has and she raves about it, and loves it.
‘But, not all the facts are accurate. Like when OJ was contemplating suicide, it was in my room, not Kim’s room. They’re sensationalizing the Kardashian name in it to bring a younger audience in. I’m not upset about it…
‘There was some scene of the kids chanting “Kardashian” when my dad was reading the potential suicide note. I even called Kim – because I was 10 – and said, “Did that happen? I don’t remember any of this happening.”
‘She goes, “Absolutely not, did that happen.”’
The Kardashians airs on Hulu in the US and is available to stream on Disney+ in the UK.
