Dolly Parton Offers TV Sequel, ‘Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love’
Dolly Parton's life story will come back to television during the 2016 holiday season. Following the success of last year's Coat of Many Colors, NBC and Parton have revealed the sequel, titled Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love.
"I was so overwhelmed and touched by how many people watched Coat of Many Colors and their reaction to it," Parton says in a press release. "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. 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."
Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love will continue the storyline of Parton's young life. A press release shares that the film will deliver "Christmas joy and peril as an unexpected blizzard threatens the Parton family." Additionally, Parton's father and siblings help to contribute money so he can buy his wife — once again played by Jennifer Nettles — the wedding ring he could never afford to give her.
The original cast will return for the sequel. Additional cast members and a premiere date for the televised film will be announced in the coming months. Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love was written by Pamela K. Long, who acts as executive producer alongside Sam Haskell and Parton.
