Netflix unveils first-look images for Inventing Anna
The new limited series from Shonda Rhimes stars Ozark's Julia Garner as fake heiress Anna Sorokin.
Netflix has released the first images from its upcoming limited series Inventing Anna.
Created and written by Shonda Rhimes, it’s set to explore the real-life story of Anna Sorokin (Ozark’s Julia Garner) who scammed hotels, banks and wealthy acquaintances out of thousands of dollars by pretending to be a wealthy German heiress.
The show will be told through the eyes of ambitious journalist Vivian Kent (Veep’s Anna Chlumsky) as she investigates Sorokin’s larger-than-life story.
“Is Anna New York’s biggest con woman or is she simply the new portrait of the American dream?,” reads the official plot synopsis.
“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?”
Katie Lowes, Jeff Perry, Laverne Cox, Arian Moayed, Terry Kinney, Anders Holm, Anna Deveare Smith and Alexis Floyd also star.
Devil Wears Prada's David Frankel is set to direct the first two episodes of the show which currently doesn’t have a release date.
Inventing Anna is the second scripted show to emerge from Rhimes’s multi-million-dollar deal with the streaming giant following smash-hit period drama Bridgerton.
