CBS All Access has announced the commission of three new series, including a project from Scott Free and Executive Producer Ridley Scott.
The project, currently titled “Strange Angel,” is a drama series created by Mark Heyman and based on George Pendle’s book of the same name. It explores the real life of Jack Parsons, a man in 1940s Los Angeles who helped pioneer the field of American rocket science, and by night is a performer of sex magic rituals and a disciple to occultist Aleister Crowley. The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with us, Scott Free Productions. Heyman, David DiGilio, Scott, and David W. Zucker will serve as executive producers; Clayton Krueger will be co-executive producer, and David Lowery will direct and executive produce.
We look forward to sharing more details about “Strange Angel” in the near future.
