The six-part series, which is currently filming, is based on guitarist Steve Jones's 2017 memoir 'Lonely Boy: Tales of a Sex Pistol' and will centre around Jones as he encounters Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, going on to found the punk band in 1975 with John Lydon, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock.
