Alan Powell, creator, co-writer and producer of the upcoming Netflix faith-based musical "A Week Away," says Netflix couldn't be more excited for the release of its first original faith-based musical. 

Powell's "A Week Away" features a slew of rearranged contemporary Christian music hits and a high-profile Hollywood cast. Some of the actors include Sherri Shepherd, David Koechner, Jahbril Cook, Kat Conner Sterling and Iain Tucker.

The idea for the movie came from Powell, a Christian singer and actor, who co-wrote the screenplay with Kali Bailey. He was inspired to write the script after chatting with his brother-in-law who runs a youth group.
