Sky Urban Myths: The Sex Pistols Vs. Bill Grundy

We are happy to announce that Daniel Mays will star in an episode of Sky Arts Urban Myths.

Daniel stars as Mike Housego in Urban Myths: The Sex Pistols vs. Bill Grundy

This is the reimagined story behind The Sex Pistols’ infamous appearance on Bill Grundy’s show in 1976, a year before their legendary debut album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols was released. The foul-mouthed encounter catapulted The Sex Pistols into the public eye and signalled the arrival of mainstream punk, while simultaneously destroying Grundy’s career – and all because of a last minute cancellation by Freddie Mercury.

Starring Daniel Mays (Mike Housego), Steve Pemberton (Bill Grundy), Kieran Hodgson (Malcolm McLaren), Kayvan Novak (Freddie Mercury) Frankie Fox (Johnny Rotten) and cast members from the National Youth Theatre. Written by Simon Nye. Directed by Simon Delaney. Produced by Spelthorne Community TV.

The eight episodes will be available on demand via the SkyGo and NOW TV platforms from Thursday 12th April, with the episodes broadcasting weekly from that day in a 9pm slot.
