Episode #16 (season 2, episode 8): "Betty Davis" (season finale)

Debut date: FRIDAY, DEC. 21 (10:00-10:30 p.m.)

The queen of funk, Betty Davis should have been a superstar. A small-town southern girl, she exploded onto the music scene in the early '70s after launching a career in New York as a fashion model and playing muse to Miles Davis. Her brief marriage to the jazz legend helped launch her career as a performer. Betty Davis' uninhibited sexuality, marked by a raunchy stage presence and suggestive lyrics, made her brand of funk unforgettable, but she disappeared from music after being boycotted by religious groups, black political leaders and the NAACP.

Written by Mark Monroe; directed by Mike Judge.
