After being the subject of Netflix’s invent Anna, it looks like Anna Sorokin is going back to the television space. Reports revealed on Wednesday that Sorokin, who went by the alias Anna Delvey during her stint as a prolific con artist, will be the subject of a new reality show, tentatively titled Delvey’s Dinner Club. The series would follow a series of dinner parties catered by a professional chef and held at Delvey’s Manhattan apartment while she is under house arrest over charges of overstaying her visa. Delvey’s Dinner Club, which is produced by lifestyle company Butternut, does not currently have an affiliate platform.
According to Delvey’s Dinner Club‘s official description, the series will follow “what has already become one of the hottest tables in town – invite-only, intimate dinners at her home. There, a Delvey-invited group of actors, musicians, founders, socialites, journalists and other esteemed guests will join her each week around a private chef-cooked table of candid conversation where no subject is off limits – including Anna’s experience within the criminal justice system, her strategy to rebuild her image, and her plans for the future.
“Nothing beats the experience of bringing a curated group of friends together to share life stories and enjoy a great culinary experience,” Delvey said in a statement. “I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Wheelhouse and Butternut to bring my vision to a wider audience and share a glimpse of the real Anna Delvey.”
“It’s often said that the best way to get to know someone is to share a meal with them,” said Courtney White, former president of Food Network and current CEO of Butternut. “We are all desperate to know who Anna really is. Delvey’s Dinner Club will reveal the real woman behind everything we’ve read and seen about Anna. She tells her story in her own words and we believe she will defy viewers’ expectations.”
Sorokin’s life was dramatized in invent Anna, a Netflix miniseries in which a journalist with a lot to prove investigates the case of Anna Delvey, the Instagram legendary German heiress who has stolen the hearts of New York’s social scene – and their money too. The series stars Julia Garner as Delvey, with Anna Chlumsky as Vivian Kent, Arian Moayed as Todd Spodek, Katie Lowes as Rachel Williams, Alexis Floyd as Neff Davis, and Laverne Cox as Kacy Duke. The series is based on Jessica Pressler’s coverage of Delvey’s real-life scandal.
“It was really surreal,” Garner previously told Elle to meet the real Delvey. “She’s really funny, when you meet her in person, so I knew there had to be that comedic aspect to the show. Very funny, very likeable, and she wanted to talk, as much as she could. But I also think still not that she thinks she did anything wrong I think she just wanted power, and prestige and success, and she still thought that way It seemed like her perspective was still that she wasn’t doing anything wrong, that she was just doing everything did whatever it took to get where she should be. I don’t think she sees the difference between being hungry and being ambitious.”
