Netflix officially acquired the upcoming comedy The Fifth Wheel, which is produced by and will star Kim Kardashian.

The streamer was reportedly embroiled in a bidding war against theatrical distributors and other streamers, however two of the five companies pulled out of the competition at the last minute prior to Kardashian and co-writers Paula Pell and Janine Brito signing the agreement with Netflix. The Fifth Wheel will feature a female ensemble cast, however the plot details and main cast are yet to be announced.

Kardashian may primarily be known as a reality star and businesswoman, but she took a serious foray into acting this year. She took on a lead role in Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Delicate, portraying the role of entertainment agent Siobhan Corbyn.
