The latest in Sky Art’s comedy dramas sees a more unusual casting choice: Frank Skinner as the Man in Black.

Set in a hotel in Nottingham in November 1983, the hotel’s owner Jean (Isy Suttie) discovers the room has been trashed by Cash, who claims he has been visited by a killer ostrich named Waldo. He then tells the story of how two years earlier the ostrich attacked him, and he has now tracked Waldo down to the Midlands – and Cash is looking for revenge.

Urban Myths: Johnny Cash and the Ostrich is on Sky Arts at 21.00.
