God Save the Sex Pistols: Danny Boyle Pistol TV series pogos onto Disney+ this May

The Sex Pistols in Danny Boyle's Pistol TV show

Danny Boyle’s eagerly anticipated Sex Pistols series, Pistol, will land on Disney+ May 13. The limited series, based on Pistols’ guitarist Steve Jones’ 2017 memoir Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol, recounts the heady early days of the Pistols, the punk band who sparked a music revolution in the UK. 

Pistol will screen exclusively Disney+ in UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, and on Hulu in the US. All six episodes will drop at launch.

We’re particularly excited for this one: Created and written by Craig Pearce, Pistol is the unlikely story of a bunch of lads that found themselves at the epicentre of a cultural maelstrom. The series spans three years, from Steve Jones school days with soon to be bandmate Paul Cook, through the release of the band’s seminal Never Mind the Bollocks album, to their Stateside demise.
