LATINA CHRISTMAS SPECIAL - Creator/Writer/Performer
The hit holiday show that has been playing to sold out audiences since 2013. Los Angeles Times "Critic's Choice!" Off Broadway runaway hit at SoHo Playhouse in 2019.
It's the feel-good middle-aged lesbian almost British comedy you've been waiting for!
L.A.TINAS (pilot) - Writer
Four Latinas of different ethnicities try to develop their own reality series but their own chaotic made for "reality TV" personalities make the task virtually impossible. Based on a story by Elizabeth Morales, Bruna Rubio, Veronica Milagros Diaz, and Ivonne Armant.
LATINA SPECIAL (podcast) - Creator/Writer
Diana Yanez, creator of the hit show, "Latina Christmas Special" hosts this podcast that features original, true - but classically Latinoxagerrated - stories of life in the United States America as a Latina. With "Latina Special" you get the whole funny story, including the parts that make you think.
CARMEN (animation) - Creator/Writer
Carmen is a little bit loca. She doesn't fit in though she really wishes she could. This is her humor-filled journey into self-analysis at age 10.
