Straight Outta Heaven: John Singleton producing series about rapping angels

John Singleton is producing a new hour-long TV show with a twist we haven’t seen before: angels who rap.

According to Deadline, the show, Straight Outta Heaven, was just purchased by CW and is described as “Touched by an Angel-meets-Ghost with an urban twist and described as a faith-based, hip-hop-infused guardian angel drama.”

— Ice Cube sounds off on ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Oscar snubs: ‘I’m not surprised’ — 

Singleton will write and co-executive produce with Dallas Jackson.

“John and I have similar genre taste and recognized a need on network television for the underserved urban youth audience and faith-based audience. The CW is the perfect home for this new kind of hero we’ve created who’s superpower is faith,” Jackson told Deadline.
