Sky Arts 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. The encounter catapulted the Pistols into the public eye, 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) Written by Simon Nye. Directed by Simon Delaney.
