Who is Anna Delvey.. really? That’s the question everyone seems to be trying to answer in Inventing Anna, Shonda Rhimes’ anticipated Netflix series, the first series she’s created since Scandal, starring Julia Garner in the title role.
“Anna Delvey is a masterpiece, bitches!,” exclaims Garner’s Anna in the official trailer released today by Netflix.
The nine-episode limited 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.
In Inventing Anna, a journalist with a lot to prove investigates the case of Anna Delvey, played by Garner, 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?
Cast also includes Anna Chlumsky, Arian Moayed, Katie Lowes, Alexis Floyd, Anders Holm, Anna Deavere Smith, Jeff Perry, Terry Kinney and Laverne Cox.
Rhimes executive produces with Shondaland’s Betsy Beers, Tom Verica and David Frankel. Writers include Rhimes, Matt Byrne, Jess Brownell, Abby Ajayi, Nick Nardini. Directors are Frankel, Verica, Daisy Von Scherler Mayer, Ellen Kuras and Nzingha Stewart.
