Veneno is an original series created, written and directed by Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrossi. It tells the story of the life and death of Cristina Ortiz, known as La Veneno. It is fiction but is based on the memoir “¡Digo! Ni puta ni santa”, written by Valeria Vegas. When Valeria was a small child, she could never understand why people called her by another name, a name that was not hers. The same thing happened to Cristina, who survived a violent and cruel childhood in Spain in the 60s. Although both women were born in very different eras, chance or fate brings them together forever when Valeria, a student of Journalism, decides to write a book about the life of iconic Cristina, La Veneno. Veneno won the GLAAD award, the Rainbow award given by Spain´s Ministry of Equality, two Iris awards given by the Television Academy, the Silver Frame for best Spanish series and the ODA (Observatory of Diversity in Audiovisual Media) award. It was also nominated for the Dorian Awards, Imagen Awards and MIPCOM Diversity TV Excellence Awards for Best Series.
