Angel Reyes is a producer and writer, known for Greenleaf (2016), The Get Down (2016) and Sons of Anarchy (2014). He won the Writers Guild of America Award for Best New
Series and was nominated for the WGA Award, Best Dramatic Series. Angel Reyes was born and raised in Los Angeles. He attended ND Academy High School in Irvine where he studied
drama and music theory. From there, he went on to attend Chapman University where he studied Film Production and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing.
While at Chapman, Angel performed lead roles in almost every production staged by the theatre department, including “The Threepenny Opera”, “The Pirates of Penzance” and “The
Fantastiks”. After graduating from Chapman University held several different jobs including working as a tutor at Varsity Tutors and an English teacher at local high schools before
transitioning into writing full time. In addition to his work as a writer, Angel is also an aspiring singer-songwriter known as “Arge’d”. His first single “Darling” has been released
digitally on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play Music, etc., with plans to launch new music later this year.
Angel’s writing career began after he was accepted into the distinguished Writers Guild of America’s New Media/New Voices writer’s program. During his time in the program, Angel
wrote several shorts as part of a collection entitled “My First Time”. His short entitled “Movies” was named one of the top ten shorts in the collection and featured in numerous
festivals across the country. His short “The Note” was subsequently selected to be the WGA’s official promotional short. After completing the program, Angel was signed to a
writing deal with R&M Productions. His first feature screenplay “The Fade” was produced as a short film by R&M and its accompanying soundtrack features music by Angel himself. His
next screenplay “The Method” has also been optioned and is currently in development. After completing several shorts, Angel was hired to write a pilot for YA network
AwesomenessTV. His first network gig was as a staff writer on the FOX series The Last Ship. He then transitioned back into feature films as a co-writer on the Netflix action-
adventure-thriller film The Dirt, based on the life of Mötley Crüe, starring Daniel Radcliffe and directed by Jeff Tremaine.
Greenleaf, a family drama set in the world of churches, was the first show Angel was hired to write as a staff writer. He was brought in as part of a team that included creator Craig
Wright and executive producer/showrunner Yolanda Rodriguez. The show, which stars Merle Dandridge, Vincent D’Onofrio, Lamman Rucker, and Shawn Hatosy, was critically acclaimed
and earned the WGA Award for best new series.
The Get Down (2016)
In 2016, Angel was hired as a writer and co-executive producer for Baz Luhrmann’s music-driven drama The Get Down, which is set in the world of New York City in the 1970s. The
series, which is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Netflix, centers on a group of teenagers as they navigate the Bronx of the late ’70s.
Sons of Anarchy (2014-2015)
After joining the show as a co-producer and staff writer at the outset of its final season, Angel quickly became an indispensable part of the show’s writing team. He was promoted
to story editor mid-season and then to co-executive producer for the show’s final episodes. During his time on the show, he wrote episodes 5 (“Coils”), 13 (“Black Widower”), 15 (“To Thine Own Self”), and 19 (“Crucifixed”).
With the launch of the critically acclaimed Greenleaf and The Get Down, there’s no doubt that this is an exciting time for Angel. With a few projects he’s written and produced now
out in the world, there’s no doubt that he’s got a big future ahead of him. As an aspiring singer-songwriter, Angel plans to launch a new single this fall with an accompanying music
video. He also has plans to release a full-length album in the near future.
