Anna Luna was the first of many teleseryes that ABS-CBN launched in the 1990s. The producers used unknown actors in the beginning because of limited budget. The network was not optimistic about the show’s success; but it became a commercial and critical hit, and the plot was stretched to prolong the show. It was about the struggle of Anna Luna (played by Margarita Fuentes) and her mother (Beverly Vergel) to be reunited after a tragedy separated them. It aired in 1988 during afternoons at 2.
