Dolly Parton visited NYC today (May 11) with a big announcement with NBC!
Her first movie of the week will be Coat Of Many Colors, a part of a 7-song/picture deal. On hand for the big announcement was her longtime manager Danny Nozell from CTK Management in Nashville, her developing partner Sam Haskell, and NBC Entertainment's Bob Greenblatt.
Based on the inspiring true story of living legend Dolly Parton's remarkable upbringing, this once-in-a-lifetime movie 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. Over the years, many have attempted to bring this story to life, and now, finally, fans across America can experience the heartwarming tale of a courageous nine-year-old girl from Tennessee and the loving family that taught her the power of inner strength.
