Julia stars in the upcoming Shonda Rhimes show alongside Anna Chlumsky, Laverne Cox, Katie Lowes, and Alexis Floyd.

Here is the official synopsis for the show, via Netflix: “In Inventing Anna, a journalist (Chlumsky) with a lot to prove investigates the case of Anna Delvey (Garner), the Instagram-legendary German heiress who stole the hearts of New York’s social scene — and stole their money as well. 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?”

If you didn’t know, Anna Delvey, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, was a poor Russian immigrant who posed as a wealthy German heiress to gain access to a better life and con people into funding her lifestyle. She is currently serving a prison sentence and will likely be deported after she’s released.

Fans also think Julia might be playing a legendary entertainer soon!
