Kim Kardashian is venturing into new territory in her career but has some reservations about the path ahead.

In the latest episode of The Kardashians, Kim shared with her friends that she had successfully pitched a comedy movie, The Fifth Wheel, to Netflix, alongside writers Paula Pell and Janine Brito.

The film would mark Kim's debut as a lead actress and producer.

"I was not expecting this career turn, it really did take me by surprise, and I think we all have Brad Slater to thank for this. He's my agent," Kim explained in a confessional.

"You want a Brad Slater in your corner, he thinks the world of me."

The mother-of-four has acknowledged that she was anxious before The Fifth Wheel was picked up because this was her first time submitting a movie concept to a company.

"If it happens and it works out, I will feel really accomplished and feel really fulfilled, but who knows?" she said of the film, which she described as a mix of The Hangover, Bridesmaids and First Wives Club. "This is just new to me, I'm a little bit green to this."

Her anxiety began to settle, but pressure soon started to mount as offers started to come in. "Everyone called within 20 minutes with offers, it was really cool," Kim recounted of the five studios she met with.

"The offers they're bringing my way, I'm like, 'You think I can do that? I can't do that,'" she told her friends over dinner, before noting in a confessional, "How do they know I can do it? Now the pressure's on because I'm like, 'Oh s***, this is happening,' I'm tripping the f*** out low-key because I have to really do this and I have to deliver."

In 2023, the SKIMS mogul made a notable appearance in the 12th season of American Horror Story: Delicate, playing the role of Siobhan, a publicist in the entertainment industry.
