Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been in the news a lot since she was elected, but over the last few days the focus on her has shifted from politics to content creation. Last week, news broke that Netflix had offered $10 million for a documentary about Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign that debuted at Sundance Film Festival. This week, Ocasio-Cortez revealed that she would be the first guest on a highly anticipated TV series premiere.
For the series premiere of #DESUSandMERO, it's only right our first guest is a BX luminary.
