Dolly Parton Announces 'Coat of Many Colors' TV Movie

In an effort to bring family friendly television back to prime time, Dolly Parton has announced she will partner with NBC for a TV movie about her life.

Dolly Parton made a surprise announcement in New York on Monday. A TV movie about her life is coming soon to Primetime TV. 

Coat of Many Colors will be the first of a planned series of TV movies to air on NBC that will aim to dramatize some of the country legend's best-known songs.

Named after her song of the same name, the two-hour, made-for-TV movie will follow the true story of her upbringing in Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains. According to the film's official description, the special "takes us inside the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith, and a raggedy patchwork coat that helped make Dolly who she is today."

The premier date and cast have not been announced. Parton and her longtime friend and former agent Sam Haskell, will serve as executive producers on the project. 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: If you know anything about me .. you know I LOVE Dolly Parton. I've had the honor of interviewing her numerous times. She even gave me marriage advice in one of our one-on-one interviews a few days before my wedding several years ago. She is just as down to earth and kind as you imagine she would be. I don't know anyone who doesn't like Dolly .. so I'm sure this will be a big hit! I know that I will be tuned in! May even have to have a little watch party :) :)
