Netflix, Rhimes Plan Anna Del Vey TV Series

Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland banner and streaming giant Netflix have acquired the rights to Jessica Pressler’s recent extensive New York Magazine article “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People”.

Delvey became infamous when it was revealed she had been posing as a wealthy German heiress in New York’s high society, conning numerous people and financial institutions to fund her lavish lifestyle. She is currently being held without bond in New York’s Rikers Island prison.

Rhimes is attached to write the series, her first project since signing her new deal with Netflix back in August.
