What a great Christmas present!
Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors had a total of 12.8 million viewers when it originally aired on December 10th, so why deprive the general public with only one showing?!
NBC has announced that the made-for-TV movie about Dolly Parton's childhood in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee will air again. On Christmas!
Dolly served as the executive producer of the film to make sure her story was told the right way. Her younger sister, Stella, even made an appearance in the movie as the town gossip, Corla Boss, and also acted as the on-set representative for the Parton family.
In a cast interview on Dolly's official website, Stella said she wanted to be sure her family's faith was portrayed in the movie.
"It was very, very important to me that everyone see the film and the honest, sincere form of worship that I grew up with. I wanted all the actors to also see that. They all got into it in a very sincere way. I loved it, and I thought it was very, very special. I believe people will see it as a high point in the film."
We definitely did. While the movie is about Dolly's family and her childhood, it also showed just how much her faith shaped her into the person she is today.
Make sure you tune in to NBC on Christmas night, December 25th at 9pm.
