Cristina Ortiz, AKA La Veneno, was a Spanish singer, actress, sex worker, media personality, and one of the first transgender women to become widely known in Spain. She rose to fame in the 1990s before vanishing from public life and then returning to TV for appearances. By this time, the internet had become a more common thing, leading younger generations to discover her. That sets the stage for Veneno, a new HBO Max series about a young journalist who discovers, and is drawn to, La Veneno. Watch the Veneno trailer below.
