Shondaland has started delivering the goods with the online streaming service providing platform Netflix as a part of their and Shonda Rhime’s monster output deal. One of the next big projects are on the way, and it is a new limited drama miniseries titled Inventing Anna.
In this article, we will be discussing all the details that we currently have, including the release date expectations, who is involved in the project, and what the series is all about.
As it has been mentioned earlier that Inventing Anna is part of the big output deal of Shonda Rhime for Netflix. It is going to be the third title from the deal after Bridgeton, which is arriving on Christmas, and Dance Dreams, with a lot more on the way from the creator of the series, already planned.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, although Bridgerton is grabbing the most attention, Inventing Anna is the one that is managing to generate the most buzz with the streaming giant itself.
We would like to tell you that the series is based on the true story of Anna Sorkin, also known as Anna Delvey, who tricked and conned the New York elite. It is based mainly on a NYMag article that took a deep dive into the convicted high flyer.
Although the article itself is not available on the website of NYMag, it has been published on a subsidiary, The Cut.
Shonda Rhimes is involved in the project at an executive producer level alongside Holden Chang, Betsy Beers, and David Frankel. Jessica Pressler, who has worked in Hustlers previously, is the lead writer on the series.
David Frankel, previously worked in The Devil Wears Prada, and Tom Verica, previously worked in How To Get Away With Murder, are the directors included in the series.
