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.

Urban Myths is back on Sky Arts beginning Thursday, 12 April. Look for Daniel’s episode to air on Thursday, 31 May.

We will have more information on this episode of Urban Myths soon!
