Anna “Delvey” Sorokin is attempting to shake off her fraudster image with a new reality TV show entitled Delvey’s Dinner Club.

The series will see the Russian-born fake heiress host “celebrities, moguls and glitterati” for dinner parties at her New York City apartment, where she is currently on house arrest for overstaying her U.S. visa.

In a press release, the show’s producers Butternut and Wheelhouse described the unscripted series filmed in Sorokin’s residence as “one of the hottest tables in town — invitation-only, intimate dinners at her home.”

Sorokin, now 32, will discuss a myriad of topics with her guests in each episode, including her own criminal past, rehabilitating her public image and the isolation she experienced as a result of her house arrest.

“There’s nothing like the experience of bringing together a curated group of friends to share life stories and enjoy a great culinary experience,” Sorokin said in the press release. “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.”

Sorokin, who used the name Delvey while posing as a German heiress with an over US$60-million fortune, spent nearly five years in prison for grand larceny and theft.

In 2018, a profile of Sorokin for The Cut revealed her to be a con artist who swindled over $200,000 from banks, friends and others to keep up her appearance as a high-profile New York socialite. At the time, she had been attempting to establish the Anna Delvey Foundation, “a membership club experience” focused on organizing a contemporary art collection.

Her story was the inspiration behind the popular Netflix docudrama Inventing Anna. Producer Shonda Rhimes reportedly paid Sorokin $320,000 for the rights to her name.

Sorokin told Page Six that she has big ambitions for her new reality show, including a list of dream guests like Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, Madonna and Elon Musk.

A platform or release date has yet to be announced for Delvey’s Dinner Club.
