Netflix will team with producer DeVon Franklin on a faith-based feature that is inspired by a real-life COVID-19 recovery.

The project is based on the story of a pastor from Northern Ireland, Lee McClelland, who was hospitalized with COVID-19 in the spring. His health deteriorated, and he felt he was nearing death when a hospital janitor came to his room to pray over him. The next day, he says, he began to recover.

McClelland, who lives in Belfast, shared his story in a video on Facebook, where it has been viewed millions of times.
