Netflix today revealed the teaser trailer for Inventing Anna, a new limited series from executive producer and showrunner Shonda Rhimes (Bridgerton, Scandal).
Inspired by the true story of a total fake, Inventing Anna consists of nine episodes and will debut on February 11, 2022. You can view the teaser using the player below and you’ll also find more photos and a teaser image underneath.
In Inventing Anna, a journalist with a lot to prove investigates the case of Anna Delvey, the Instagram-legendary German heiress who stole the hearts of New York’s social scene – and stole their money as well.
But is Anna New York’s biggest con woman, or is she simply the new portrait of the American dream?
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?
The series is inspired by the New York Magazine article “How an Aspiring ‘It’ Girl Tricked New York’s Party People – and its Banks” by Jessica Pressler, who also serves as a producer.

The cast is rounded out by Anders Holm (Jack), Anna Deavere Smith (Maud), Jeff Perry (Lou), Terry Kinney (Barry), and Laverne Cox (Kacy).
Created and showrun by Shonda Rhimes, the series is written by Rhimes, Matt Byrne, Jess Brownell, Abby Ajayi, and Nick Nardini.
The directors are David Frankel, Tom Verica, Daisy Von Scherler Mayer, Ellen Kuras, and Nzingha Stewart. The executive producers include Rhimes, Betsy Beers, Tom Verica, and David Frankel.
