Jenner, 50, was a close friend of Nicole Brown Simpson's at the time of the murder and, coincidentally, she was also the ex-wife and of famed defense attorney Robert Kardashian, Sr., who was a member of the "Dream Team" that convinced the jury to set Simpson free.

"The current plan is to turn the Kardashian family segments into high camp comedy, with winking references to their current fame," the source told The ENQUIRER.

"Lisa will only appear in two or three episodes, but the producers want the publicity that will come from hiring Lisa to camp up Kris' role in the O.J. saga!"

As far as who they want to play the other roles of the characters involved in the high-profile trial, the insider reveals to the magazine, "Cuba Gooding Jr. is O.J. Simpson, John Travolta is Robert Shapiro, Sarah Paulson is Marcia Clark and David Schwimmer is Robert Kardashian, Sr."
