John Singleton is developing hour-long drama “Straight Outta Heaven,” which has landed at The CW, TheWrap has learned.

The storyline is being kept under wraps, but is being described as a faith-based, hip hop-infused guardian angel project.

Singleton is writing and executive producing with Dallas Jackson.

The duo recently shot drama pilot “Rebel” for BET.

Also in development at The CW are a “Dynasty” reboot, “Casa,” a family drama revolving around immigration, from Greg Berlanti, as well as “Mata Hari,” based on the life of Margaretha Geertruida “Margreet” MacLeod, the Dutch exotic dancer who was convicted of being a spy in World War I, and Tim Kring’s “Stick Man,” a crime drama described as being in the vein of “Making a Murderer.”

Singleton is also working on drama series “Snowfall” for FX.
