Being a songwriter is similar to being a writer for television, they both tell stories. Dolly Parton, one of country’s most prolific songwriters, has announced that she will be teaming up with Netflix to create a series of television films to premiere on the streaming network.
According to Dolly’s camp, each installment, set to be 8 episodes, will be based on a different Dolly songs, with the singer-songwriter appearing in select episodes. Dolly will also be executive producing this Netflix series for her own Dixie Pixie Productions.
“As a songwriter, I have always enjoyed telling stories through my music. I am thrilled to be bringing some of my favorite songs to life with Netflix. We hope our show will inspire and entertain families and folks of all generations, and I want to thank the good folks at Netflix and Warner Bros. TV for their incredible support,” said Dolly.
Dolly is not stranger to television as she also teamed with Warner Bros TV to produce her 2016 NBC-TV film Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love and 2015’s Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors.
Now, if we can just reunite Dolly with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin on Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie,” we’ll be set.
