to Andy Warhol's TV (Madison Square Network)

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 T.V., consisted of 18 half-hour slots on Manhattan Cable TV purchased by Warhol. They ran from 1980-1982. The second series of Andy Warhol's TV was broadcast on the Madison Square Network in 1983 and was commissioned by Peter Rudge, a former road manager for The Rolling Stones. 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.
