Streets of Myth

A live action web-series set in an alternate-universe, contemporary England where every neighbourhood is a fiefdom and every wrong look can end in blood.


At first glance, the Birmingham in Streets of Myth looks a lot like ours. The buildings look about right. The clothes are the same. The kids listen to hip-hop and hard rock. Birmingham's neighbourhoods are roughly the same too: Aston, Digbeth, Nechells, The Jewellery Quarter & more.

But instead of a city, they are a loose collection of gangs and petty rivalries, tied together and policed by the weakened and corrupt forces of The Crown. These gangs aren't quite like our gangs though. They don't have guns.

They have swords, spears and the ancient martial traditions of the Far East. Each neighbourhood has their own power structure, their own laws and their own fighting style.

The Streets of Myth are a place that lies at the intersection of DJ's and dim-maks, kings and graffiti, B-boys and bloodied swords.


Some dialogue from the first 4 episodes for your eyeballs...

There are already a lot of fun characters with more than a few kick-ass lines in our first four scripts. We sent a few out during our Dialogue of Myth Tweet-a-Thon on Friday, March 7. In case you missed it, here is every line we tweeted, organised by character and district:

First up, Aston...


Bobby Lak:

  • "I don’t like your shitty neighbourhood or your shitty, overpriced sparkly bling and I sure as shit don’t like you."
  • "What happens if I tell you to fuck off?"
  • "I guess we'll take our chances. See you on the battlefield, Jimmy."

Ben Stone:

  • "He’s alive, last I checked."
  • "But you have to understand me and mine won't enter any alliance with you."
  • "And we mean to not be ruled. Not by anyone."

Vicky Holloway:

  • "That’s too bad, you’re particularly fun to beat on."

John Holloway:

  • "When you step out of this door, you’re a target. They’ll show you no mercy."


  • "I don't know, John. This bloke is a nutter is what I hear."



Jane Collins:

  • "An Elite is above all mindful; able to see only what he is presented with."
  • "Passion, strength, practice... they can make a great fighter, but they alone can not make an Elite."

Gary Collins:

  • "One day, soon, I'll be stronger than you. I swear it. And on that day, you better keep your fucking head down."

Eli Collins:

  • "Kill me yourself, child, if you've got the balls."

Bethany Marsh:

  • "If you know anything about me, you know I won't stand my citizens being taken wrongfully by anyone, Crown included."

The Jewellery Quarter


Jimmy Jenkins:

  • "There’s a war coming. And we’re caught right in the middle of it." 
  • "We let the rich districts control us. And they get away with it because we're too busy fighting each other."
  • "And if they can't get us, they'll come after our children and our grandchildren."

Alexandra Elk:

  • "I just don’t see how you and yours are going to come out of this."
  • "If you don't prove this to me fast, Stone, we're spilling blood right here."

The Crown a.k.a. The Free Zone 


Lord Oberon Wessex

  • "Now, what to do with you… Shall we kill them?"
  • "If they have any problem with that, they can stay in there for the rest of their short, miserable lives."



Walker Wei Shi:

  • "I'm not here to stir the pot. I'm here to fucking break it."




  • "A glass-jawed bitch like everyone else in Digbeth."
