Anna Sorokin doesn’t have far to go for her next move.
Sorokin, which became the subject of Netflix Inventing Anna After posing as a wealthy German heiress named Anna Delvey while living in New York, she announced Wednesday that she will star in an unscripted reality series while under house arrest. The show, currently titled Delvey’s Dinner Club, will follow Sorokin, 32, to her East Village apartment as she hosts a collection of actors, musicians, founders, socialites, journalists and more for invitation-only private dinners.
The intimate evenings will be catered by private chefs and include equally intimate conversations about “Anna’s experience in the criminal justice system, her strategy to rebuild her image and her plans for the future,” according to a release.
For four years, Russian-born Sorokin used a fake persona to spend on invalid credit cards and issue fake bank statements, bounce from hotel to hotel and steal about $275,000. She was arrested in October 2017 following a sting operation and was found guilty of eight charges, including attempted grand larceny in the first degree, grand larceny in the second degree, grand larceny in the third degree and theft of services, in April 2019.
Sorokin was then released early from prison in February 2021, before being detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement after overstaying her visa. He chose to spend 18 months in immigration detention rather than return to Europe. Since her release, she has been banned from social media and must use electronic monitoring.
