Annaliza premiered on ABS-CBN in 2013 topbilled by Andrea Brillantes.
The return of classic 80s soap opera to television launched the career of child actress Andrea, who has proven her acting prowess by playing remarkable roles as Princess in E-Boy, young Jessy Mendiola in Sabel and Paraiso, young Kim Chiu in Ina Kapatid Anak, and young Andi Eigenmann in Kahit Puso’y Masugatan.
Annaliza is the story of a young girl with a very kind heart who is raised by a foster father Guido (Zanjoe Marudo). When she is still a baby, Annaliza will be stolen from her biological and wealthy parents—the restopreneurs Lazaro (Patrick Garcia) and Isabel (Denise Laurel). It is Stella (Kaye Abad), Lazaro’s avenging ex-lover, who has the baby stolen with the help of her suitor Makoy (Carlo Aquino).
Afraid of being caught red-handed, Makoy leaves the child to his best friend Guido, a fishport worker. Despite his average and simple life, Guido wholeheartedly accepts Annaliza and raises her as his own daughter.
Annaliza begins to endure challenges and hardships in her young life when Guido eventually marries Stella and leaves for Saudi in hopes of giving them a better life. But fate rewards Annaliza’s innate goodness by bringing her closer to Isabel and Lazaro, not knowing they are her true parents.
Also included in the cast were Khalil Ramos, Sue Ramirez, Kiko Estrada, Shy Carlos, Kyline Alcantara, Jillian Aguila, and Reign Tolentino. Annaliza was under the direction of Theodore Boborol and Cathy Camarillo
