The CW has snagged the hourlong drama, Straight Outta Heaven, written and executive produced by John Singleton and Dallas Jackson. The project is being described as Touched by an Angel-meets-“Ghost” with an urban twist. It’s also being pegged as a faith-based, hip-hop-infused guardian angel drama. Jackson says of the project,
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.
