Shonda Rhimes has officially got her first project coming down the pipeline at Netflix!
Earlier this year, we learned that after years of producing original content with ABC, Shonda Rhimes had officially inked a new exclusive multi-year deal with Netflix.
Now, it looks like the woman behind television hits like Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal has her first Netflix Original lined up!
According to Deadline, Rhimes’ Shondaland production company and Netflix have officially acquired the rights to a recent New York Magazine article that was making some serious waves on the internet this past week.
The longform feature, which was written by Jessica Pressler, told the story of a con woman who went by the name of Anna Delvey (real name Anna Sorokin) who posed as a German heiress in order to talk her way into a life of luxury.
Pressure’s story, which took the internet by storm when it was first published on May 28, detailed how Delvey conned banks, businesses, and other friends in the socialite scene and used money accrued from her con to go on lavish international holidays, stay in expensive hotels, and much more.
Delvey carried on until last October when she was accused of being a con artist and later charged with multiple counts of grand larceny and theft of services. Currently, she’s being held without bond on Rikers Island and has pleaded not guilty.
Given how much traction the story got online, we’re sure Rhimes’ forthcoming Netflix Original will make for some serious must-binge
television whenever it debuts.
Other than Rhimes, who is set to write the upcoming adapted series, there’s currently no word on who else might join the cast and crew of the upcoming Netflix Original. There’s also no word on when it’ll release.
