The series, created by showrunner and executive producer Shonda Rhimes, who is the genius behind Bridgerton and Grey’s Anatomy, tells the story of a journalist investigating the case of Anna Delvey, aka “the Instagram-legendary German heiress who stole the hearts of New York’s social scene - and stole their money as well".
Netflix continue: “But is Anna New York’s biggest con woman or is she simply the new portrait of the American dream? Anna and the reporter form a dark, funny love-hate bond as Anna awaits trial and our reporter fights the clock to answer the biggest question in NYC: who is Anna Delvey?”

Now, fans have taken to Twitter to share their opinion on the similarities between the two fraudster-related titles.
One wrote: “First The Tinder Swindler and now Inventing Anna... We are in the mood for fraud.”
Another told followers: “If you liked Tinder Swindler you’ll like Inventing Anna.”
“Apparently Inventing Anna is a good follow-up to The Tinder Swindler. From one fraudster to another,” a third commented.
A different home-viewer asked followers: “So... what should I watch first... The Tinder Swindler? Inventing Anna? Moral Sense? LOL [sic]”.
The series’ showrunner recently revealed in a press release that it was a New York Magazine article about the fraudster which inspired the show.
“I was running on a treadmill when I read the article in New York Magazine about Anna Delvey, and I remember literally jumping off of the treadmill and calling my office,” Rhimes said.
“I really felt like I hadn’t felt that excitement of a story that I wanted to tell and knew exactly how I wanted to tell it in a really long time.”
Inventing Anna is out on Netflix on 11th February 2022.
