Netflix's 'Inventing Anna' Is Inspired by the Lies of Fake Heiress Anna Delvey

Netflix has debuted the teaser and release date of Inventing Anna, a TV series inspired by the case of fake Russian-German heiress Anna Delvey.

The upcoming series is created by Shonda Rhimes and stars Julia Garner as Anna Delvey/Anna Sorokin, the real-life fraudster who managed to break into New York’s social scene while posing as a wealthy heiress and racking up expensive hotel and restaurant bills:

“In Inventing Anna, a journalist with a lot to prove investigates the case of Anna Delvey, the Instagram-legendary German heiress who stole the hearts of New York’s social scene – and stole their money as well. But is Anna New York’s biggest con woman, or is she simply the new portrait of the American dream? Anna and the reporter form a dark, funny, love-hate bond as Anna awaits trial and our reporter fights the clock to answer the biggest question in NYC: who is Anna Delvey? The series is inspired by the New York Magazine article “How an Aspiring ‘It’ Girl Tricked New York’s Party People — and its Banks” by Jessica Pressler, who also serves as a producer.”

Joining Garner in the main cast are Anna Chlumsky (Vivian), Julia Garner (Anna Delvey), Arian Moayed (Todd), Katie Lowes (Rachel), Alexis Floyd (Neff), Anders Holm (Jack), Anna Deavere Smith (Maud), Jeff Perry (Lou), Terry Kinney (Barry) and Laverne Cox (Kacy). The nine-episode limited series will be helmed by David Frankel, Tom Verica, Daisy Von Scherler Mayer, Ellen Kuras and Nzingha Stewart, written by Rhimes, Matt Byrne, Jess Brownell, Abby Ajayi and Nick Nardini and executive produced by Rhimes, Betsy Beers, Tom Verica and David Frankel.

Watch the teaser above. Inventing Anna premieres February 11, 2022 on Netflix.
