Ana de la Reguera tackles taboo subjects on her new show which is based partially on her life as an actress and woman aging in Hollywood and the Mexican entertainment industry. CineMovie interviewed the Mexican actress remotely in the age of this pandemic. She's currently in Los Angeles on her own riding out the lockdown while she's promoting her new show.
During the above interview, Ana talks about why she was willing to take on subject matters such as experimenting with bisexuality and women's expectations.
More about the show below.
Ana will premiere on Monday, April 20th on the broadcast network Comedy Central (Latin America) and on the Spanish-language streaming service PANTAYA (United States and Puerto Rico), and on Tuesday, April 21st via streaming on Amazon Prime Video (Latin America). The series is written, produced and created by Ana de la Reguera who also stars in the lead role.
Ana is an inspiring, unreserved comedy series that brings down taboos and old-fashioned concepts about the role of women in society. Hilarious and honest, Ana takes us without apologies through a journey of love, professionalism, sex, marijuana, self-discovery and the pressure of meeting everyone’s expectations. In each episode, Ana explores each one of the many “Anas” she had never dared to be.
Reguera is joined by Tina Romero as her mother “Nena,” Andres Almeida (Narcos) as “Check,” Paulina Davila (Luis Miguel - La Serie) as “Chock,” Tom Parker (Superstore) as “Chic,” Carlos Miranda (Vida) as “Papasito,” Lalo España (Pastorela) as “Manager,” Paly Duval (Mrs. Acero) as “LatinTuber” and the leading actor Salvador Sanchez (The Perfect Dictatorship) as “Bellboy.” Ali Gardoqui and Augusto Gardoqui, Reguera’s sister and father in real life, will play their own roles of “Sis” and “Guti” in the series.
Each episode of the series features a musical number. Ana’s powerful soundtrack includes original music and tracks by artists such as Rosalia and C. Tangana, Residente, Francisca Valenzuela, Fito Paez, Kany García, Naty Peluso and Ali Gua Gua, among others.
Reguera is recognized for her roles in multiple Hollywood films and hit television series, including her starring role in David E. Kelley’s acclaimed Amazon Prime Video original series Goliath and her recurring role on the STARZ hit show Power. She also made special appearances in Narcos and Jane the Virgin. Reguera is also known for her performance as “Sister Encarnacion” alongside Jack Black in the feature film Nacho Libre and her role in the critically acclaimed HBO series Cappadocia. Reguera has three major upcoming films: Army of The Dead, The King of The World, and the new installment of Purge.
