The True Story of a Total Fake: “Inventing Anna” Gets a Teaser and Release Date

It’s been over two years since we announced the main cast of the Shondaland and Netflix drama “Inventing Anna” and we now have a release date and teaser trailer. The 9-episode limited series will arrive on February 11th and stars Anna Chlumsky (“VEEP”), Julia Garner (“Ozark”), Katie Lowes (“Scandal”), Laverne Cox (“Orange Is the New Black”) and Alexis Floyd (“The Bold Type”). The series is about a socialite con-woman called Anna Delvey (Garner) and is based on the true story from an article by  titled ‘How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People’. Delvey duped her way to the top and almost signed a multi-million dollar deal for her own private club. It didn’t go to plan though as she’s currently incarcerated for up to 12 years…

In “Inventing Anna”, a journalist (Chlumsky) with a lot to prove investigates the case of Anna Delvey (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? The series is inspired by the New York Magazine article “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People” by Jessica Pressler, who also serves as a producer.
