Kim Kardashian West is set to star in a new documentary focusing on criminal justice reform.
The project has the working title Kim Kardashian: The Justice Project, and comes after the reality star revealed earlier this year that she is studying law.
After speaking about her passion for the subject in an interview with US Vogue, the 38-year-old later issued a statement saying she had decided to “follow a dream” and was working day and night to achieve it.
Oxygen Media, a US TV network known for its true crime programmes, says its new show will capture Kardashian West’s efforts to free prisoners she believes were unfairly sentenced.
On its website, the network says the documentary will give “an exclusive, never before seen look inside her mission to tackle one of America’s most controversial subjects”.
Last year, Kardashian West lobbied the White House for clemency for Alice Marie Johnson, who served more than two decades of a life sentence without parole for non-violent offences.
President Donald Trump commuted her sentence and signed bipartisan legislation that gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts.
Kardashian West registered with the California State Bar, the official attorney licensing agency, shortly afterwards.
After speaking about her studies earlier this year, she received lots of criticism online from people making fun of her decision.
In response, the star said: “I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should ‘stay in my lane’.
“I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am.”
Law already runs in the family; Kardashian West’s late father was lawyer Robert Kardashian, who was a member of OJ Simpson’s defence team.
The star is being mentored by two lawyers who are helping her log her required 18 hours of weekly supervised study, and is preparing for the “baby bar” legal exam after coming to the end of her first of four years of learning.
Earlier this week, she attended the Met Gala, one of the most elaborate and glamorous fashion events of the year, with husband Kanye, wearing a “straight out of the ocean” wet-look dress.
The couple are getting ready to welcome their fourth child, via a surrogate.
