Dolly Parton’s  “Coat of Many Colors 2“  is in production in Atlanta and casting paid extras

Last year, NBC ran the TV special, “Coat of Many Colors,”  and plans to do a sequel this year. Based on Dolly Parton’s experiences and music,   “Coat of Many Colors” was the first film in what was planned as a series based on Dolly Parton’s childhood memories which ultimately influenced her music. This summer, the next movie in the series is filming.

Atlanta’s CL Casting is now looking to cast lots of “folky” paid extras to work on the project. A new casting call for extras has been released and the production is looking for folks who can pull off a 50s look playing “townfolk,” “church folk,” “miner folk,” and medics. All roles are for folks local to the Atlanta area only.

NBC’s “Coat of Many Colors” was a ratings hit for the network. The holiday special drew almost 16 million viewers last holiday season and NBC is hoping to do the same come this years holidays.  “Coat of Many Colors 2” is bringing back the original cast  and will continue Dolly Parton’s true story about growing up in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains.  Jennifer Nettles, Ricky Schroder, Gerald McRaney and Alyvia Alyn Lind will all be returning for the upcoming film. Also, Stephen Herek who directed the original “Coat of Many Colors” will be back for part 2.  Dolly is named as the show’s executive producer once again and the TV special will premiere for the 2016 / 2017 holiday season.
