What is Inventing Anna about?

The upcoming drama series tells the story of the notorious scammer, Anna Delvey (Anna Sorokin), and how she managed to convince New York City’s elite that she was a German heiress and con them for several years. The show also focuses on the journalist who followed Anna’s case, Vivian, as she works to figure out how Anna was able to scam New York’s wealthy socialites.

Here’s the official synopsis via Netflix below:

"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 Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People” by Jessica Pressler."
