BRAVO MEDIA BRINGS TEX-MEX TO YOUR TUESDAYS WITH NEW SERIES "TEXICANAS" PREMIERING TUESDAY, MAY 7 AT 10PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - March 27, 2019 - Bravo Media presents the social scene of San Antonio, Texas in the new docuseries "Texicanas" premiering Tuesday, May 7 at 10pm ET/PT. Boasting one of the largest Latino populations in the United States, San Antonio is a city rich in Mexican culture and flare, making it the leading destination for Mexican nationals. The series follows Penny Ayarzagoitia, Mayra Farret, Lorena Martinez, Anayancy Nolasco, Karla Ramirez, and Luz Ortiz, a stylish group of San Antonio sophisticates as they try to balance their social lives and the demands of raising a family. But, it's their shared experience of facing the ongoing challenges of American culture, while still finding ways to honor their heritage and traditions that bonds these ladies with a connection that runs deeper than friendship.

In a unique twist, "Texicanas" is told from the perspective of Penny Ayarzagoitia as she recounts the events ahead that lead to relationships unraveling and friends turning into foes. It's not all drama for these Texicanas though, displaying a true sisterhood, they lean on one another for advice and keep each other honest. Embodying the true welcoming spirit, they'll find just about any reason to have a good time. Whether it's afternoon margaritas, poolside mariachi parties, or getting dressed to the nines for a glamourous night on the town, these women love to party Texas-style - large and loud but always including a twist of their Mexican roots... with mucho gusto!

MEET THE TEXICANAS:

Penny Ayarzagoitia

"Chisme" is the Spanish word for gossip, and Penny often finds herself at the center of it. The fact that she has a stripper pole in the middle of her living room doesn't help to quiet the chatter about her in the conservative Mexican-American community of San Antonio. Penny doesn't care, she's been breaking tradition her entire life. Like many in the group, Penny was born in the U.S. but spent her youth in Mexico. She's worked hard to build a successful real estate company with her husband Raul, and the two work as a team raising their two sons. As you might guess, the last word you'd use to describe their marriage is "machista."

Mayra Farret

"Perfectionist"... that's Mayra in one word. It defines her, it drives her and it haunts her. Born in Mexico, Mayra's path to success was unmatched- from boarding school, to a finance degree, to landing a high powered finance job in Monterrey, Mexico, she strives for the best. Mayra moved to San Antonio with her husband, Fernando, nine years ago. Although she's now a U.S. citizen, at the time, she didn't have a green card, so Mayra shifted her focus from a working professional to a professional mom. Her two boys mean the world to her and she has taken that drive to succeed in business and applied it to parenthood. Mayra is the first to admit she's a "people pleaser," which often has the opposite effect and causes tension within her friend group.

Lorena Martinez

Born in a Texas border town, but raised in Reynosa, Mexico, Lorena jokes that at fifteen, she wasn't planning a quincea´┐Żera, she was picking out wedding dresses and dreaming of a family. At 19, she married Ignacio and now has what is known as a traditional Mexican "machista" marriage. Her husband runs a construction company while she runs the family. Lorena is the social butterfly of the group, she knows everyone and everything.

Anayancy Nolasco

Anayancy is as unique as her name. Born in Mexico, she's the only one in the friend group who isn't a U.S. citizen, though she's working hard to change that. As a self-admitted "daddy's girl," she enjoys going back to Mexico to be spoiled by her father as often as she can. Moving to San Antonio for college, Anayancy remained stateside after having her daughter, Ellie. As a single mom, Anayancy faces the double standard in the Mexican community where, if she goes out and enjoys herself at a party she's judged, but her married friends who do the same are just having fun and blowing off steam.

Karla Ramirez

Karla is originally from Brownsville, Texas and has been living in San Antonio, Texas now for over 13 years. Married to entrepreneur, Manoli Zacharias who she affectionately calls her "Grexican," as he's half Greek and half Mexican. Together they own several businesses including Hotel Discotheque, a thriving nightclub that caters to the well-to-do community of San Antonio. They have two vibrant boys and, as a couple, view one another as equals in their marriage, all while providing their best assets as parents in their day-to-day lives. Her devotion lies with her family and friends, and she believes that mutual respect is what keeps any relationship thriving.

Luz Ortiz

Luz has been called many things, but "conventional" isn't one of them. Though she's lived in San Antonio for 17 years, Luz was born in Arizona, grew up in Sonora, Mexico and was raised in a highly conservative environment. She married at 23 and had three children, but soon after, found herself unwilling to conform to her husband's traditional expectations. Six years ago, Luz divorced her husband and is proud of the fact that she's rejected typical Mexican female norms. Now, in addition to raising her kids, Luz is a real estate agent and entrepreneur - owning and running a successful boxing gym.

"Texicanas" is produced by Adjacent Productions and PSG Films with Bill Fritz serving as Executive Producer for Adjacent Productions and Anna Rodzinkski serving as executive producer for PSG Films.
