Ana Maria in Novela Land premiers on Oxygen on Saturday, May 2, at 8PM ET/PT. It features a telenovela loving young woman who trades places with a character in one of the novelas. She gets to negotiate multiple love affairs while her alter-ego, the novela character Ariana Tomoso, is left trying to deal with life in Los Angeles.
Anyone who has lived in LA or watched a novela knows that both lives are likely to be complicated, which should make for some good humor. Both women are supposed to learn lessons about love and faith, but I hope they enjoy themselves while they are at it.
Ana Maria in Novela Land is the fun-filled story of how one super fan, Ana Maria, switches places with her favorite telenovela star, Ariana Tomosa. Starring EDY GANEM (Devious Maids), in a breakout, dual role as both Ana Maria and Ariana Tomosa, the film centers around Ana Maria, a typical 20-something who is living life on her own terms but frustrating her family and friends all the while doing so. As she journeys inside a world of seemingly limitless opportunities in “Novela Land,” things get heated during a love affair with a wealthy businessman and his younger, sexy son. Meanwhile, Ariana is forced to deal with the harsh realities of living in Los Angeles with an over-protective but loving family. As each of these women navigate their new lives, they come to the realization that love and true faith in themselves is all they really needed to have the life they dreamed of.
