According to an article in Rolling Stone, Dolly Parton and NBC made the announcement back in May. The Network will produce a series of made for TV specials revolving around Parton’s hit songs. The first in the series will be “Coat of Many Colors“, the made-for-TV movie will follow the true story of her hard-scrabble upbringing in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains, famously immortalized by her song.
“Coat of Many Colors” is an autobiographical song which Parton composed while traveling with Porter Wagoner on a bus in 1969. Due to a lack of paper on the tour bus, Dolly wrote the song on the back of a dry cleaning receipt from one of Wagoner’s suits. After the song became a hit, Wagoner had the receipt framed. Dolly Parton recorded the song in 1971, making it the title song for her Coat of Many Colors album. The song describes her childhood. Dolly was one of 12 children born to a sharecropper in Smokey Mountain region of East Tennessee. They all lived in a home that had no running water or electricity. Dolly Parton kept the original coat, now on display in her Chasing Rainbows Museum at Dollywood. Mr. Wagoner (owner of the dry cleaning receipt that the song was written on) also donated the framed receipt to the museum.
Dolly Parton is serving as executive producer on “Coat of Many Colors”, and according to Deadline, the TV movie will air on NBC during their fall 2015/2016 season with the film airing sometime between September 2015 and May 2016. Pamela K. Long (“Second Noah”) is writing the script.
Coat Of Many Colors is one of a few movies that Parton is working on. Dolly Parton has a deal with NBC to develop a few films, all based on her songs. The movies will feature her music but are not musicals. Dolly Parton will also appear in some of her upcoming TV movies.
