Based on George Pendle's 2006 book of the same name and developed for CBS All Access by Mark Heyman (Black Swan, The Wrestler), Strange Angel follows the mysterious-yet-brilliant double life of Jack Parsons in Los Angeles during the 1940s.

By day, he works as an acclaimed scientist in the then-unknown world of rocketry. 

But, by night, he moves into a darker realm, experimenting with sex magick alongside occultist Aleister Crowley.

Strange Angel will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions.

Mark Heyman, David DiGilio, Ridley Scott, and David W. Zucker will serve as Executive Producers; Clayton Krueger will serve as co-Executive Producer; and David Lowery (A Ghost Story, Pete's Dragon) will direct and executive produce.
