Tinder Swindler Simon Leviev 'Pitches Controversial New Show' And Plans To Break Hollywood
| Last updated
His new talent manager looks to be Gina Rodriguez all but confirmed the news in an Instagram story.
Rodriguez, who is the CEO of talent management company Gitoni, reposted someone else's story on to her own page, whilst also tagging @simon_leviev_official.
With the help of his new manager, TMZ reports Simon has pitched an idea for a dating show which would see women competing for his love, along with sharing dating dos and don'ts on a potential podcast.
The conman - whose real name is Shimon Hayut - features in the new doc that was released earlier this month on 2 February.
The film showcases the incredible story of women who were conned by the pretend-playboy.
He has spent years travelling around the world on the run from the authorities and was wanted for a series of crimes, including forgery and theft.
The conman spent two years in a Finnish prison for defrauding several women and after his 2017 release, he went back to Israel, then fled the country for Europe before he could be arrested, which is where he met The Tinder Swindler's Cecilie Fjellhoy.
Hayut was eventually caught for using a fake passport in Greece in 2019.
He was extradited to Israel and sentenced to 15 months in prison for theft, fraud, and forgery of documents - all charges from 2011, unrelated to the accusations made against him in the Netflix documentary.
He was later released after five months on good behaviour.
The official synopsis for The Tinder Swindler reads: "Swipe, swipe, swipe... It’s not easy to find love online, so when Cecilie matches with a handsome billionaire playboy, she can’t quite believe it when he turns out to be the man of her dreams.
"But dreams aren't reality and by the time she discovers this international businessman isn’t who he says he is, it’s too late. He’s taken her for everything.
"Where this fairytale ends, a revenge thriller begins. Cecilie discovers his other targets and once they band together, they're victims no more: THE TINDER SWINDLER meets his match."
The Tinder Swindler is available to watch on Netflix now.
