According to Pressler’s story, Anna Sorokin aka Anna Delvey started to become a permanent member of New York’s elite. In order to be included in the exclusive circles, she lied about being a German heiress. At the same time, she claimed to have a fortune worth $60 million. During her time in New York, she was always dressed in designer clothes and stayed at luxury hotels. Similarly, she did not shy away from spending money. However, it was not her own money and had scammed people, businesses, and banks of hundreds of dollars. In the end, she was charged with multiple counts of grand larceny and theft of services. At the moment, she is in jail in Rikers Island and Shonda Rhimes is making a show called Inventing Anna.

In order to prepare for Inventing Anna, Julia Garner visited the real Anna

According to Shonda Rhimes, Inventing Anna is a show to find out who the real Delvey really is. During the show, the characters will also focus on this big question. Therefore, Julia Garner, who is also an Emmy-winning actress, decided to do her own research. She visited real Anna Sorokin in prison to get to know her better. However, it did not go as planned. While talking about her visit, Inventing Anna star said:

“Anna doesn’t even know herself, and it’s really hard to play someone who doesn’t know themselves. My roles just get harder and harder the older I get …If I hear that a part’s going to be hard, I’m like, ‘That sounds terrifying, that sounds terrible.’ And then I’m like, ‘I’m doing it.'”

With this new collaboration with Netflix, Rhimes has made a permanent home at the network. Inventing Anna trailer was released recently and the fans are anxiously waiting for the show. I cannot wait to binge-watch it.
