to Andy Warhol's TV (Manhattan Cable TV)

Andy Warhol was the Executive Producer of three separately named television series: Fashion (1979-80); Andy Warhol's T.V. (1980-83); and Andy Warhol's Fifteen Minutes (1985-1987). The first series of Andy Warhol's TV was on Manhattan Cable TV. The second series was on the Madison Square Network.

For the first series of Andy Warhol's T.V., Warhol purchased 18 half-hour slots on Manhattan Cable TV. In 1983, a former road manager for The Rolling Stones, Peter Rudge, commissioned Warhol to make additional episodes for the Madison Square Network. In 1981 Warhol also did three segments lasting about 1-2 minutes on the NBC television show, Saturday Night Live, which were called Andy Warhol's TV on Saturday Night Live. One segment was footage of him talking about death while being made up which was also used at the end of Kim Evans' documentary on Warhol.
