“Transformers” and “Detroit” star Jack Reynor has landed the lead role in CBS All Access’ new series “Strange Angel,” with “Pete’s Dragon” helmer David Lowery directing the pilot.

“Strange Angel” follows Jack Parsons, a brilliant and ambitious blue collar worker of 1930’s 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 magick rituals at night and became a disciple to occultist Aleister Crowley. Parsons used Crowley’s teachings of self-actualization to support his unimaginable and unprecedented endeavor to the stars.
