Carla Morrison Makes Debut on U.S. Television with the film “Ana Maria in Novela Land” on Oxygen
Our very own Carla Morrison has already made her big screen debut and to that we will add her U.S. Television debut with the worldwide release of Ana Maria in Novela Land on Oxygen Network.
The film will air Saturday, May 2 at 8:00 p.m. (PST) then again at 10:00 p.m. (PST), with another encore Sunday, May 3 at 8:00 a.m. (PST).  Plenty of opportunities for you to get your Carla Morrison / Edy Ganem fix

“A spirited dual performance by Edy Ganem and a pointed telenovela spoof breathe plenty of life into a comedy that offers comfort through familiarity

The mainstream embrace of ABC’s “Ugly Betty” and The CW’s “Jane the Virgin” will hopefully mean that the charming and hilarious telenovelasatire “Ana Maria in Novela Land” can find a larger audience beyond the Latino movie ghetto. Starring Edy Ganem (“Devious Maids”) in what should be a star-making turn as both schlubby millennial Ana Maria and hyper-glamorous “gold-digging orphan/whore” Ariana (the protagonist of the fictional “Pasión Sin Limites,” or “Passion Without Limits”), this switching-places comedy warmly and trenchantly sends up thetelenovela genre’s swooning melodrama and oversexed-but-prudish contradictions.”


“Ana Maria in Novela Land” stars a group of seasoned and up-and-coming performers led by Edy Ganem (“Devious Maids”), in a breakout, dual role as both Ana Maria and Ariana Tomosa; Michael Steger (“90210”) as Tony, the love-struck doctor next door, and as Armando, the playboy son of Ariana’s wealthy fiancé;  Luis Guzmán (“Boogie Nights”) as Schmidt, the scheming lawyer who wants to bring Ana Maria down; Nestor Serrano, Ana Maria’s patient father who adores her no matter what; newcomer Carla Morrison (Latin Grammy winning Singer/Songwriter) as Laura, Ana Maria’s no-nonsense best friend; and the late Elizabeth Peña as Ana Maria’s well-intentioned, but hard-edged mother. This movie sadly marked her last film.”

Whether you’ve seen the endearing film (or you’re about to see it for the first time), do we have the soundtrack for you!

Caught up in the quirks and shenanigans of both Ana Maria and Ariana we felt inspired to plug in our headphones and create the perfect playlist for our protagonist Ana Maria.

With the help of some our very talented artists [Carla Morrison, Gaby Moreno, Sol Pereyra, Mariel Mariel and many more] we’ve concocted a balanced blend of heart-wrenching, inspirational, whimsical, take-me-for-what-I-am musical numbers that will have you feeling like Ana Maria herself at the end of the album.
