Anna Delvey (real name: Anna Sorokin) is ready to make headlines again. The infamous scammer, whose exploits inspired 2022’s “Inventing Anna,” is getting a reality TV show of her own, and it’s not like anything you’re expecting. The series, which has the working title “Delvey’s Dinner Club,” will chronicle Delvey’s house arrest in her East Village apartment through dinner parties with actors, musicians, socialites, journalists, and thought leaders where they discuss topics like the criminal justice system and her plans for the future.
Production companies Wheelhouse and Butternut announced the series in a press release on Jan. 25, according to Deadline. Butternut was founded by former Food Network boss Courtney White, and Wheelhouse’s many projects include Brooklyn Beckham’s cooking show.
Each episode of the show will showcase Delvey’s life under house arrest during the day, then her dinner parties at night. There is currently no streamer or channel attached to the project.
Delvey said in a statement, “There’s nothing like the experience of bringing together a curated group of friends to share life stories and enjoy a great culinary experience. I’m 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.”
Delvey was sentenced to prison in 2019 after she was found guilty of grand larceny and theft of services. She was released in 2021 but was then taken into ICE custody for deportation to Germany. In 2022, she was released on house arrest and agreed to not post on social media. She has, however, continued to do interviews about her life.
In early 2022, Deadline reported that Delvey was also working with the production company behind “Surviving R. Kelly” to create a docuseries about her life.
