In the new criminal drama “Inventing Anna”, Netflix has released the first look at Ozark star Julia Garner.
The miniseries stars Garner as Anna Delvey, a real-life German heiress who stole money from various members of New York’s elite between 2013 and 2017. It was created by Shonda Rhimes, the showrunner of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and Bridgerton.
It’s based on Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine article How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People, and it’s mainly focused on Vivian, a journalist who sets out to expose who the real Anna is as she awaits prosecution for her wrongdoings.
“This story is completely true… except for all of the parts that aren’t,” the streaming platform’s official synopsis teases. “Anna and the reporter form a dark, funny, love-hate bond and fights the clock to answer the biggest question in NYC: who is Anna Delvey?”
Succession’s Arian Moayed (playing Todd), Scandal’s Katie Lowes (Rachel), The Bold Type’s Alexis Floyd (Neff), The Mindy Project’s Anders Holm (Jack), Nurse Jackie’s Anna Deavere Smith (Maud), Grey’s Anatomy actor Jeff Perry (Lou), Billions’ Terry Kinney (Barry) and Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox (Kacy) round out the cast.
David Frankel, Tom Verica, Daisy Von Scherler Mayer, Ellen Kuras and Nzingha Stewart will direct, working with scripts from Rhimes, Matt Byrne, Jess Brownell, Abby Ajayi and Nick Nardini.
Executive producers will include Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, Tom Verica, and David Frankel.
Rhimes teased, “Get ready, people,” as she shared the stills to her Twitter account.
