Anna Liza was a Filipino drama series broadcast by GMA Network created by Ray Benedicto and Raynee Selgado, directed by Gil C. Soriano, produced by Happy Vision Corporation & Television International Corporation.[1] It premiered on February 4, 1980, and was regarded as the network's first primetime series. Due to the sudden death of Julie Vega (the main character that played Anna Liza in the series), the series ended on May 10, 1985, with an incomplete storyline. It was replaced by Mirasol del Cielo. The series was remade by ABS-CBN on 2013.

Despite its popularity beating RPN's Flordeluna in the 1980s becoming the most popular and well-loved drama in the Philippines, no full episodes resurfaced. Although, partial footage of the episodes resurfaced, even the intro.
