Shonda Rhimes's Netflix shows are finally going to start rolling out in 2020, and that includes Inventing Anna. Based on the New York magazine article "How Anna Delvey Tricked New York's Party People" by Jessica Pressler, the show will tell the wild but true story of a woman known as Anna Delvey, who convinced New York's elite that she was one of them. Delvey claimed to be a German heiress, but in reality she was the not-at-all royal Anna Sorokin. During her time in New York she conned her way into parties full of famous faces, dodged paying lavish hotel bills, and turned her natural charm into cash by hanging with the right crowd.
The series stars Ozark's Julia Garner as Delvey/Sorokin, while Anna Chlumsky plays the journalist trying to expose the fake heiress's lies.
