Remember when Shonda Rhimes inked a multi-million dollar deal with Netflix?
Well, we have an update that is set to rock your world.
Shonda is to tell the real-life story of a woman, Anna Sorkin, who scammed her way into New York’s social scene and financial system by pretending to be a German heiress with millions to her name!
Determined to maintain the lie, Sorkin used her newfound connections to scam banks and her associates out of substantial amounts of money but was eventually exposed by a woman named Neffatari “Neff” Davis.
She was charged with multiple counts of grand larceny and theft of services and is being held without bond on Rikers Island. She has pleaded not guilty.
Rhimes is to pen the television adaptation and release it via Netflix!
A due date is yet to be set.
