The CW has just scooped “Straight Outta Heaven,” an hourlong drama written and produced by legendary director John Singleton and Dallas Jackson.
The project is being referred to as Touched by an Angel-meets-Ghost with an urban twist and described as a faith-based, hip-hop-infused guardian angel drama.
Warner Bros. TV is the studio. Straight Outta Heaven stems from a blind script deal Jackson had at the studio last season.
“John and I have similar genre taste and recognized a need on network television for the underserved urban youth audience and faith-based audience,” Jackson said. “The CW is the perfect home for this new kind of hero we’ve created who’s superpower is faith.”
Oh, this sounds like it’s going to be good.
I can’t wait. Your thoughts?
