‘Jo­lene’ will be the next Dolly Par­ton movie to air on NBC

The China Post - - ARTS -

The next movie about Dolly Par­ton’s life to air on NBC will be “Jo­lene.”

The an­nounce­ment came Thurs­day at a panel for TV crit­ics about the film “Coat of Many Col­ors.”

The 1973 song, “Jo­lene,” is about one woman beg­ging another to not steal her man.

John Sacret Young, who was a writer on “China Beach” and “The West Wing,” is pen­ning the script.

In Jan­uary, the U.S. TV net­work NBC an­nounced a deal with Par­ton to pro­duce TV movies inspired by her songs, sto­ries and life.

“Coat of Many Col­ors” stars eight-year-old Aylvia Lind as a young Par­ton in the film based on her au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal track.

Ricky Schroeder and Jen­nifer Net­tles have been cast as the singer’s par­ents.

It will air on NBC for the hol­i­days.


Record­ing and mix engi­neer Al Schmitt poses with his star dur­ing the cer­e­mony honor­ing him with a star on the Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame in Los An­ge­les on Thurs­day, Aug. 13.
