SKY Urban Myth: A comedy based on The Sex Pistols on Bill Grundy’s show

Sky Arts Urban Myth series includes a comedy based on the infamous scene with the Sex Pistols on Bill Grundy’s nightly show. The incident actually ended Grundy’s show but the memory lives on. Acme re-created various elements of that time for the production. Acme recreated NME Magazine, The Sun with the Sex Pistols headline featuring the young actors playing the Sex Pistols and Steve Pemberton playing Bill Grundy.
