Dolly Parton's eight-episode anthology series Dolly Parton's Heartstrings premieres on Netflix this year and we're learning new details about the project. Each episode of the series will be based on one of Parton's songs and will feature the country legend.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the episodes will be centered on Parton songs "Jolene," starring Juliane Hough and Kimberly Williams-Paisley, "These Old Bones," starring Kathleen Turner, "Cracker Jack," "Two Doors Down" and more.
Gerald McRaney (Longmire, Promisedland), Delta Burke (Designing Women) and Camryn Manheim (The Practice) will also star in episodes of the series.
The series is produced by Parton's Sandollar Productions and Sam Haskell's Magnolia Hill Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television. Parton also serves as an executive producer for the series.
The series follows Parton's successful Coat of Many Colors NBC movie series. Coat of Many Colors, starring Jennifer Nettles and Ricky Schroder, debuted on NBC in 2015. Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love premiered the following year.
Dumplin', a Netflix original movie featuring original and reimagined Parton songs, debuted in 2018. The soundtrack features collaborations between Parton and Miranda Lambert, Mavis Staples, Macy Gray, Elle King, Alison Krauss and more.
The country star will return to the big screen in the upcoming 9 to 5 reboot. The film's original co-stars, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, will also appear in the film.
