Dolly Parton’s TV movie ‘Coat of Many Colors’ was an incredible smash hit for NBC— the film was the No. 1 movie on broadcast television in six years and attracted more than 15.9 million viewers nationwide.
Good news for those who enjoyed the original program based on Dolly Parton‘s childhood, the DVD will be released on May 3 and will include deleted scenes and a featurette from Parton herself about her heartfelt song being turned into a movie.
The movie is based on the inspiring true story of Parton’s remarkable childhood in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains. Set in 1955, the program follows the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith, and a meaningful patchwork coat that helped make Parton the success she is today.
