Scammer extraordinaire Anna Delvey has signed a deal for a TV show titled ‘Delvey’s Dinner Club’.
The 32-year-old will star in the unscripted reality series, which will capture her hosting “celebrities, moguls and glitterati” for invite-only dinner parties in her East Village apartment. The intimate evenings will be catered for by private chefs and feature candid conversations about “Anna’s experience within the criminal justice system, her strategy to rebuild her image and her plans for the future”. And yes, she is still under house arrest.
Delvey is partnering with Butternut for ‘Delvey’s Dinner Club’, a lifestyle-focused media company from Wheelhouse and led by former president of Food Network, Courtney White.
In a statement, Delvey expressed her excitement about the new series. “There’s nothing like the experience of bringing together a curated group of friends to share life stories and enjoy a great culinary experience,” she said. “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.”
White added: “It’s often said the best way to get to know someone is to share a meal with them. We’re all desperate to know who Anna really is. ‘Delvey’s Dinner Club’ will reveal the actual woman behind everything we’ve read and watched about Anna. She is breaking her story in her own words and we believe she will defy viewers’ expectations.”
To recap: Delvey (whose real name is Anna Sorokin) cultivated a fake persona to create and use invalid credit cards and steal an estimated $275,000. She was arrested in October 2017 and ultimately found guilty of eight charges, including attempted grand larceny. Following her release in February 2021, she was taken into custody again for overstaying her visa. Finally, in October 2022, she was granted a $10,000 bail bond and released from prison.
The Netflix series Inventing Anna premiered in February 2022, with Delvey reportedly pocketing $320,000 for the rights to adapt her life story.
