"Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors"
Available on DVD May 3rd
"Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors" is based on the inspiring true story of living legend Dolly Parton's remarkable upbringing. This once-in-a-lifetime movie special takes place 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 Parton who she is today.
The film is set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955. It is neither a biopic nor a musical about Dolly's whole life and performing career, but rather a family-oriented faith-based story about the incidents in her and her family's life around the time she was nine years old.
Alyvia Alyn Lind will portray nine-year-old Dolly Parton, with Jennifer Nettles as Parton's mother, Ricky Schroder as her father and Gerald McRaney as her grandfather.
To date, the initial broadcast of "Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors" delivered 15.9M total viewers, becoming the #1 movie on broadcast with total viewers in more than 6 years.
