About this title


`Urban Myths' is a series of original comedies based on stories that have been passed down over the years. Featuring an all-star cast including Iwan Rheon, Rupert Grint, Ben Chaplin, Katherine Parkinson and Aidan Gillen, these urban legends are represented in a playful and equivocal way. Without knowledge of the full story as it happened, imaginations have gone wild as famous folklore figures are recreated with bizarre narratives to follow. The first episode reveals the supposed events that occurred when Bob Dylan sought to find his friend Dave Stewart at his recording studio in London's Crouch End.
