'Madonna and the Breakfast Club' Docudrama Gets March Release Date

Before she became the Queen of Pop, Madonna was an unknown musician in New York City, who was a part of an '80s pop group called the Breakfast Club. An upcoming docudrama titled, Madonna and the Breakfast Club, will follow the life of a pre-fame Madonna before she became the pop legend that she is today.

The film starts with Madonna during her early days as a drummer, guitarist, keyboard player, and songwriter for the Breakfast Club. She had formed the group in 1979 with Dan Gilroy, who she had been dating at the time. As the film progresses, Madonna gets more involved with the band’s music, and begins to develop her own identity as an artist.

The docudrama will be split between reenacted scenes from Madonna’s time with the band, alongside recent interviews with Gilroy, his brother Ed, and bandmate Gary Burke scattered throughout the film. The film was produced by Guy Guido and Paul Castro Jr., and stars Jamie Auld as Madonna. Auld’s uncanny resemblance to the pop icon is incredibly realistic, and is sure to intrigue longtime fans of the singer.

'We filmed in the same locations Madonna once walked and performed in, incorporating the exact instruments she played, including the real guitar she used to write her first songs,' Guido said. 'It was surreal to capture Jamie in the drama that would eventually lead to Madonna pursuing her solo career.'

While Madonna left the Breakfast Club well before even their first single was released in 1984, the band would go on to some Billboard chart success with the release of their self-titled debut LP in 1987, which peaked at No. 43 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. That set featured the group's biggest hit, 'Right on Track,' which hit No. 7 in March 1987.

The film is set to release across digital and video on-demand platforms by The Orchard on March 12.

I Never thought of Confessions that way!

I actually quite excited about this film. This was one of the most interesting periods of her career and an often overlooked part of her story. The trailer looks well done and I look forward to more commentary from the members of the Breakfast Club.
I always viewed Confessions on a Dance Floor as a fully evolved vision of her pre-fame sound.
