Before she was famous, Madonna had a short but passionate and influential relationship with Jean Michel Basquiat, a pioneer and darling of the 1980s New York art scene. Basquiat was riding high while Madonna was a coat check girl, but she already had the self-belief to know she had something special.
This myth takes place across one night on the New York subway, just before she infamously door-stepped music producer Seymour Stein at his hospital bedside where he signed her on the spot. This is a poignant moment, before Basquiat's untimely death and just before Madonna broke through to 'take over the motherfucking world'.
Series 3 of the International Emmy Award-nominated comedy will be available on demand from Sky Arts and NOW TV from 10pm on Wednesday 10th April. The first episode will be aired on the channel earlier that evening, at 9pm.
