“Ozark” Emmy winner Julia Garner has landed the title role in Shonda Rhimes’ ten-episode Netflix limited series “Inventing Anna” which deals with the case of famous fraudster Anna Delvey.
Inspired by a New York Magazine article, Anna Chlumsky plays a hungry journalist investigating the case of Anna (Garner), an Instagram-infamous German heiress who stole the hearts of New York’s social scene – and stole their money as well.
Is Anna New York’s biggest con woman or is she simply the new portrait of the American dream? Soon, Anna and the reporter form a dark funny love-hate bond as Anna awaits trial and the reporter fights the clock to answer the biggest question – who is Anna Delvey?”
The series also stars Katie Lowes (“Scandal”) as a woman whose blind worship of Anna nearly destroys her, Laverne Cox (“Orange Is the New Black”) is a celebrity trainer and life coach, and Alexis Floyd (“The Bold Type”) as a hotel concierge.
David Frankel (“The Devil Wears Prada”) is set to direct the premiere and one additional episode and serves as an executive producer alongside Rhimes and Betsy Beers. Filming begins later this year in New York.
