    Jack Parsons is getting his star-turn next month, but we’ll have to wait for L. Ron Hubbard

    The effort to bring to television George Pendle’s excellent 2006 book about Jack Parsons, Strange Angel, is finally nearing fruition as a Ridley Scott-produced series premieres on the streaming service CBS All Access on June 14.

    John Whitesides “Jack” Parsons has long been a figure of fascination because he was both a pioneer of America’s early rocketry and a sex magick occultist who led an American chapter of thelema, Aleister Crowley’s riff on the dark arts which would become such an inspiration for L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology.

    Scientology watchers are well aware that Hubbard and Parsons got up to some pretty kinky things in 1945-46 at Parsons’ Pasadena home and in the Southern California desert involving a woman named Marjorie Cameron and an attempt to create “the Moonchild,” an incarnation of the anti-Christ.

    Crowley himself considered Parsons and Hubbard a couple of idiots, and no child came from the weird sex rituals between Parsons and Cameron (Hubbard reportedly witnessed the acts as scribe, while stroking his, er, wand).

    So you can see why our readers have been eagerly awaiting a television portrayal of Parsons and Hubbard and their occult shenanigans. But alas, we have confirmed with CBS All Access that the first season of Strange Angel takes place in 1938, some seven years before Hubbard and Parsons first met.

    Let’s hope ‘Strange Angel’ writers hit the books

    By Tony Ortega, June 12, 2018


    We told you earlier that CBS All Access had confirmed to us that ‘Strange Angel,’ the adaptation of George Pendle’s excellent book on Jack Parsons which premieres Thursday night, would spend its first season in 1938, well before Parsons met L. Ron Hubbard.

    Now, series creator Mark Heyman has addressed that question about Hubbard entering the series in a future season.

    “Heyman…said he won’t shy away from Hubbard and his relationship with Parsons when the time comes,” wrote IndieWire about what Heyman told a television festival audience.

    Well, that’s good. But we were given some pause when we saw this quote from Heyman:

    “L. Ron Hubbard’s first wife was Jack Parsons’ second wife, who he stole away from Jack, along with a lot of his life savings. But the Church of Scientology denies the existence of this woman, basically. They’ve disavowed her as the actual wife of L. Ron Hubbard. So it’s dicey stuff. But we’re not going to shy away from it.”

    We trust Heyman will do a little studying up before writing whatever later season Hubbard shows up in. Because the storytelling potential of Sara Northrup is a heck of a lot better than “Hubbard’s first wife who was Parsons’ second wife.”

    Try, sister of Parsons’ first wife, who he was sleeping with when Hubbard stole her away to become his second wife — while still married to his first wife — and who was disavowed not on her own, but along with all three of Hubbard’s wives by the Church of Scientology.

    Hope they have some fact-checkers over at CBS All Access.
