Anna Delvey is shooting for new show while being in House Arrest
Anna Delvey, the notorious SoHo con artist, has proven over the years to be a master of making the best of a bad situation. Delvey has shown herself to be resourceful in the face of hardship on several occasions, such as when she convinced New York’s elite that she is a German heiress, when she used her predicament to negotiate a lucrative Netflix contract, and when she put on an art display while still in jail. It seems to reason that she wouldn’t let anything as trivial as house arrest stop her from filming her upcoming reality show.
The ex-con has supposedly signed on for a new unscripted reality TV series called Delvey’s Dinner Club, which will follow the fake socialite as she holds dinner parties in her East Village apartment while strictly adhering to the terms of her house imprisonment. The programme will focus on Delvey, who was recently freed from ICE detention in October 2022, as she tells stories to her celebrity guests about her many brushes with the law, her time in prison, and her efforts to redeem her reputation as a con artist.
In a news release, former Food Network president Courtney White said, “She’ll do it through what’s already become one of the hottest tables in town — invitation-only, intimate dinners at her home, “There, a Delvey-invited group of actors, musicians, founders, socialites, journalists and other esteemed guests will join her each week around a private-chef catered table replete with candid conversations where no topic is off-limits.”
Delvey stated, “There’s nothing like the experience of bringing together a curated group of friends to share life stories and enjoy a great culinary experience. 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.”
Despite the lack of an announced launch date, production on Delvey’s Dinner Club has begun. Butternutt is a spinoff of Wheelhouse Entertainment that focuses on lifestyle content and was co-founded by Jimmy Kimmel. Delvey’s fantasy visitors reportedly range from Madonna to Elon Musk to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to artist Marina Abramovi to former Secretary of State Cyrus Vance to FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried
