How did Jessica Pressler’s exposé “How Anna Delvey Fooled New York’s Party People” make it up on Netflix?

JESSICA Pressler is a New York Magazine journalist who chronicled the rise and fall of con artist Anna Delvey, as depicted in the new Netflix series Inventing Anna.

This isn’t, however, the first time this journalist’s work has been converted for the cinema. Here’s where you can learn more about her.

In 2018, Pressler published the now-famous piece How Anna Delvey Fooled New York’s Party People.

The article covers the story of Anna Delvey, whose true name is Anna Sorokin, and how she swindled her way into becoming involved in New York’s elite circles by pretending to be a rich German-born heiress.

The real-life story, however, was far from the truth, and she was a 20-year-old thief who was eventually convicted of theft and fraud.

She received hundreds of calls after the piece was published, many attempting to option the story.

Shonda Rhimes was chosen by Pressler to direct her investigative article into the world of television.

“When I had the call with Shonda, that was the calmest phone call I’d ever had,” she said at the time of her decision to choose Shondaland.

“It was a very relieving feeling I had. And saying yes to Shonda made it so much easier to say no to all the others because when I told them who I was going with, no one was mad about that. Because it’s SHONDA.

Inventing Anna premiered on Netflix on February 11, 2022, and chronicles the events during the years 2013 to 2017.
