Shonda Rhimes Creating Netflix Series About Fake German Heiress Anna Delvey

Shonda Rhimes

While there's been no official word, Rhimes did retweet an article from Variety about it that says she's "attached" to write the series.

Anna Delvey conned, tricked, and charmed her way to the very top of New York's social elite, convincing friends, celebrities, and unfathomably rich businessmen to fund her lavish lifestyle. It was announced in August that Rhimes and Shondaland would exit ABC Studios after 15 years for a multi-year deal with the streamer.

Delvey's story went viral after it was discovered she had been posing as a wealthy German heiress who got people and financial institutions to bankroll her. However, Rhimes' creative future lies exclusively with Netflix. Shows under her umbrella, including "Grey's", "HTGAWM", "For the People" and "Station 19", have all been renewed for the upcoming season.

Facebook kept giving data to firms after saying it won’t
Facebook is back in the controversy spotlight following a new report claiming it had data-sharing deals with some companies. The companies with which the data was shared, used it for the objective of advertising and other purposes.

Now, though, the con artist who fraudulently applied for loans worth millions of dollars and whose hotel room was lined with bags of Acne and Supreme, is currently sitting in the rather less glamorous Rikers Island prison in NY, awaiting trial.

"Shonda Rhimes is one of the greatest storytellers in the history of television", said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos in a statement regarding Rhimes' deal.

Since Rhimes signed her deal, fellow mega-producer Ryan Murphy has also moved to Netflix, departing 20th Century Fox TV after more than a decade.
