HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2016/11/30 –“I was so overwhelmed and touched by how many people watched Coat of Many Colors and their reaction to it,” says Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love executive producer Dolly Parton. “The song Coat of Many Colors, of course, has always been my favorite and has touched so many people through the years, especially me.”
“It is a true story from a very special time in my childhood,” says Parton. “I am so happy to share this story with the viewers and to say there is so much more to tell because mine truly has been a life of many colors. I hope the viewers will fall in love all over again.”
“It’s no secret that everyone loves Dolly Parton and the response to our first movie was overwhelming,” says NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt “Both in terms of the size of the audience and outpouring of love for a film with family values and faith. So it felt like a no-brainer to bring this talented cast back together and tell another compelling holiday story culled from Dolly’s own life growing up in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Her spirit and belief in God — and her music — will infuse this movie with the true spirit of Dolly Parton.”
