Based on the memoir Not A Whore, Not A Saint: The Memories of La Veneno by Valeria Vargas, the eight-part drama follows Valeria (Lola Rodríguez), a young journalism student who discovers she has more in common with La Veneno than she thought. Although the two women were born in very different times, their stories become intertwined when Valeria writes a book about La Veneno (played by Daniela Santiago and Isabel Torres). Through learning more about her, Valeria discovers her chosen family, how to love herself, and the impact of mass media in the life of an enigmatic entertainer.

A co-production between Atresmedia Studios, Suma Latina, and HBO Max, Veneno costars Paca la Piraña, Goya Toledo (Amores Perros), Ester Exposito (Elite), Jedet Sánchez (Paquita Salas), and Lola Dueñas (Volver).
