Pistol – six-part series documents the turmoil of the Sex Pistols, based on Steve Jones memoir
“Pistol” is a six-episode limited series about a rock and roll revolution. The furious, raging storm at the centre of this revolution are the Sex Pistols – and at the centre of this series is Sex Pistols’ founding member and guitarist, Steve Jones.
Jones’ hilarious, emotional and at times heart-breaking journey guides us through a kaleidoscopic telling of three of the most epic, chaotic and mucus-spattered years in the history of music. Based on Jones’ memoir Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol, this is the story of a band of spotty, noisy, working-class kids with “no future,” who shook the boring, corrupt Establishment to its core, threatened to bring down the government and changed music and culture forever.
“Pistol” stars Toby Wallace as Steve Jones, Jacob Slater as Paul Cook, Anson Boon as John Lydon, Christian Lees as Glen Matlock, Louis Partridge as Sid Vicious, Sydney Chandler as Chrissie Hynde, Talulah Riley as Vivienne Westwood, Maisie Williams as punk icon Jordan, Emma Appleton as Nancy Spungen and Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Malcolm McLaren.
Disney+ unveiled the trailer and key art for the highly-anticipated, limited series “Pistol,” coming to Disney+ on Tuesday, May 31 in UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. The premiere will feature all six episodes. “Pistol” will be coming soon to Disney+ in all other territories.
Based on Jones’ 2017 memoir Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol, “Pistol” was created and written by Craig Pearce and will be executive produced by Pearce, Danny Boyle, Tracey Seaward, Gail Lyon, Anita Camarata, Steve Jones, Paul Lee, and Hope Hartman.. The series is produced by FX Productions.
