Shonda Rhimes Centers First Netflix Series on Anna Delvey Con Story

11 June 2018

The Grey's Anatomy and Scandal creator along with the Netflix, have apparently won the rights to create a show based on a New York Magazine article on the rise and fall of socialite Anna Delvey, according to reports. Sorokin has pleaded not guilty to multiple counts of grand larceny and theft of services and is awaiting trial at Rikers Island. Rhimes is attached to write the series.

Shonda Rhimes is getting to work at Netflix.

The New York Magazine article is one of two about Delvey that has been making the rounds among various producers and studios in recent weeks. One insider close to the situation has said the process has been hard and that Delvey has been making calls to various talent and producers regarding whom she would like to play her.

Anna Delvey conned, tricked, and charmed her way to the very top of New York's social elite, convincing friends, celebrities, and unfathomably rich businessmen to fund her lavish lifestyle.

As previously reported, Rhimes will continue overseeing all Shondaland shows now on the air at ABC, including Grey's Anatomy and its spin-off Station 19, but all of her future projects including series and movies will be developed for the streaming service. An aspiring filmmaker herself, Davis tweeted that she'd be involved in the project on Friday night, writing "I am beyond excited to be able to be under Shonda's wings".

Pressler was repped by Gersh in the negotiations.
