What is ‘Inventing Anna’ about?

The Shondaland and Netflix drama Inventing Anna tells the true story of Anna Sorokin, who posed as Anna Delvey from 2013 to 2017. She pretended to be a German heiress worth $60 million while forging checks and stealing money from banks. Delvey convinced the high class of New York City that she was rich and even took three friends on an “all-expense-paid” trip to Morocco. In 2019, a grand jury found Sorokin guilty of grand larceny in the second degree, among other counts of theft. However, the Inventing Anna episodes delve deeper into Sorokin’s image via her Instagram account and the lifestyle she led in New York.

How many episodes is ‘Inventing Anna’?

Inventing Anna consists of nine one-hour-long episodes of Anna Sorokin’s (Anna Delvey) story. All nine episodes drop to Netflix on Feb. 11, 2022, at 3 a.m. EST. The story is told from the perspective of a journalist who investigates the Anna Delvey cast. Although her name in the series is Vivian, the inspiration for the show came from Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine article, “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People.”

“But is Anna New York’s biggest con woman, or is she simply the new portrait of the American dream?” the Netflix synopsis reads. “Anna and the reporter form a dark, funny love-hate bond as Anna awaits trial, and our reporter fights the clock to answer the biggest question in NYC: who is Anna Delvey?”

Who is in the ‘Inventing Anna’ cast?

In addition to Ozark’s Julia Garner starring in the leading role as Anna Sorokin (aka Delvey), the Netflix Inventing Anna cast has multiple big-name stars in the episodes. Emmy nominee, Anna Chlumsky from HBO’s Veep, joins the cast as journalist Vivian. You might also remember Chlumsky for her early role as Vada in My Girl and My Girl 2

Shonda Rhimes tapped her Shondaland ABC show Scandal for Katie Lowes, who portrayed Quinn Perkins in the political drama. Lowes joins Inventing Anna as Rachel — the friend who allegedly incurred $62,000 of debt from her trip with Delvey to Morocco. The stellar cast doesn’t stop there. Laverne Cox also joins the cast from Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black as Kacy Duke. 

The Inventing Anna cast also steals a favorite from HBO’s Succession — Arian Moayed. He currently portrays Stewy Hosseini in the satirical comedy but becomes Todd in Inventing Anna. Kate Burton (Ellis Grey) and Jeffrey Perry (Thatcher Grey) from Shondaland’s Grey’s Anatomy even make appearances in the new series. Terry Kinney from HBO’s Billions and Jennifer Esposito from Blue Bloods also join the cast.

All nine episodes of Inventing Anna drop to Netflix on Feb. 11, 2022, at 3 a.m. EST.
