If you haven’t read the highly addictive New York Magazine article about Anna Sorokin (aka Anna Delvey), you’re missing out. Since appearing in the May 28 issue and subsequently online, the story about the faux socialite who scammed New York’s elite has circulated faster that an obnoxious tweet from Donald Trump. In doing so, it’s fueled much buzz about a potential onscreen adaptation.
Thankfully, the project has ended up in the best possible hands. Mother of addictive TV drama, Shonda Rhimes has acquired the rights to the article by Jessica Pressler, and she’ll be writing the series adaptation for Netflix.
This comes as her first project with the streaming network since inking a five-year deal in August, which will potentially earn her some $300 million. It also comes as her first series not produced for former network partner ABC, for which she created such binge-able series’ as Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, and Scandal.
This could be her best one yet.
