Anna Liza is a Philippine television series produced by GMA Network. It was also the network's very first soap opera in a primetime slot. Launched in 1980, the series received the attention of thousands of Filipinos—making it one of the most popular and well-loved drama series of all time. The series ended because of Julie Vega's sudden death, resulting in the serial having incomplete storyline.
