Strange Angel (10×60) – NEW SERIES – (Fall 2020)
Strange Angel follows Jack Parsons, a brilliant and ambitious blue collar worker of 1930s Los Angeles who started as a janitor at a chemical factory but had fantastical dreams that led him to birth the unknown discipline of American rocketry. Along the way, he fell into a mysterious world that included sex magic rituals at night, and he became a disciple of occultist Aleister Crowley. Parsons used Crowley’s teaching of self-actualization to support his unimaginable and unprecedented endeavor to the stars. The cast includes Jack Reynor, Rupert Friend, Bella Heathcote and Peter Mark Kendall. Strange Angel, created by Mark Heyman (Black Swan, The Skeleton Twins) and based on George Pendle’s book of the same name, is inspired by the real-life story of Jack Parsons and explores the dramatic intersection between genius and madness, science and science fiction.
