In Jan. 2015, NBC announced plans for a series of TV movies based on Dolly Parton's career and life. Today (May 12) the network shared details on the first of the bunch -- it's called Coat of Many Colors, and it's going to focus on the country icon's early years.
In the midst of the announcement, Parton herself took to the stage to perform "Coat of Many Colors" and "I Will Always Love You" (the latter being one of her best-known hits, even if Whitney Houston's version is more famous) at NBC's Upfronts presentation. Watch Dolly singing "I Will Always Love You" above.
For now, that's about all the details we have. No premiere date has been set and the cast has not been named, though NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt has noted Parton will produce the series and could even see time on screen. Deadline reports that Pamela K. Long is writing the script.
