NBC is wisely capitalizing on the huge success of last years 'Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors' ratings success with a Christmas themed sequel, titled: 'Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love'... coming this Christmas!

Returning for this new original made-for-TV movie are the original cast... Ricky Schroder, who portrayed Dolly's father Robert Lee Parton, Jennifer Nettles, who portrayed Dolly's mother Avie Lee Parton, Gerald McRaney as Grandpa Jake Owens, and Alyvia Alyn Lind, who was dynamic in the original film, as young Dolly Parton!

NBC released this storyline description:
"The film delivers Christmas joy and peril as an unexpected blizzard threatens the Parton family, while at the same time Dolly’s father (and his kids) make sacrifices to raise enough money to finally buy his loving wife the wedding ring he could never afford to give her. Meanwhile, an important person in little Dolly’s life begins to see that her amazing voice and musical gift might just be made for something bigger than rural Tennessee."

If you were one of the 15 million viewers who watched the original 'Coat of Many Colors' when it premiered last Christmas Season on NBC, then I know you will look forward to seeing this sequel movie to the Parton family story.

    We are SO excited to hear about this next segment of Dolly Parton's life. We have watched Coat of Many Colors many times now. The whole family loves it.

  3. I really enjoyed Coat of Many Colors. It was so nice to see something so well written and well acted on broadcast television. The movie made me cry, but it also made me feel good. I told my step-mom and my dad to watch it, and they both really enjoyed it as well. I think this movie just proves that people want good stories on TV. Not everything has to be R-Rated to be entertaining.

    It looks like you have a #40 to add to your Christmas Movie News 2016 blog!

  5. Yea!! Jennifer Nettles is a great actress as well as a great singer! Who knew she had such a great acting talent?! Can't wait!

  6. Dolly Parton has announced recently on Jimmy Fallon that she'll be appearing in the Circle of Love movie, as the town prostitute, and that she's also recording at least one new song for the film, called "Circle of Love." It will be available on Jennifer Nettles new Christmas album this year, as well as a new Christmas album from Dolly scheduled for 2017.

    1. I read about that, SleepyKittyPaws. I can't help but wonder how that particular role is going to pan out in a family Christmas movie??? Very interesting.

    2. Parton has frequently said she has based her entire look on her town's lady of the night. Having seen her as a child, and thinking her beautiful when made up, she asked her mother what she did/was and her mother answered, 'She's trash,' with young Dolly responding, 'I want to be trash when I grow up!' ... It's probably part apocryphal, but I'd just about guarantee that will be the scene we see in the film.
