Netflix is giving us another show of a similar trope – ‘Inventing Anna’ which is set to debut on Friday, February 11.

‘Inventing Anna’ is a miniseries based on the story of Anna Sorokin (Julia Garner), a European woman who swindled the superrich by posing as a German heiress, Anna Delvey. Delvey served as her fake alter-ego which capitalised on the false imagery that social media presents and resulted in her defrauding banks, hotels and members of the upper echelon.

Through the fictional character Sorokin created for herself, she was able to falsely shmooze her way through the high life in Manhattan, New York.

At 30-years-old Sorokin was convicted on eight counts including grand larceny, attempted grand larceny and theft of services. She was sentenced to four to twelve years in prison, fined and ordered to pay nearly $200 000 in restitution as abc news tells.


If rich-fishing (a play on cat-fishing) were a term, Sorokin would be one of the queens of swindling society – but the crown in this society can easily fall and shatters when it does. Due to the reporting on the scammer by journalist Vivian Kent (Anna Chlumsky) Anna Delvey became a point of fascination and obsession, both for the audience and especially the journalist. The real journalist in question is Jessica Pressler who reported for New York Magazine.

The series has been long anticipated due to its various pandemic-related setbacks and took four years to make. The real Anna Sorokin worked closely with the producer of the show, TV legend Shonda Rhimes who brought us Greys Anatomy.

However, it seems that Sorokin wasn’t happy with the show and opted not to watch the miniseries anytime soon. This was largely due to the show being told from ‘a journalist’s perspective’ as Sorokin noted in an essay to Insider.
