Tonight on NBC presents Dolly Parton’s childhood story pic, Coat Of Many Colors, which premieres at 9PM ET/PT).
Several soap opera notables are part of the production including: Alyvia Alyn Lind (Faith Newman, The Young and the Restless) who stars as 9-year-old Dolly.
Coat of Many Colors also stars Jennifer Nettles as Parton’s mother, Rick Schroder as her father and Gerald McRaney as her grandfather. The movie was written by former soap actor and writer Pamela K. Long (Guiding Light, One Life to Live, and Santa Barbara) She executive produces with Sam Haskell and Dolly Parton.
Also in the production is none other than Hannah Nordberg, the former Josslyn Jacks of General Hospital. Nordberg plays a new friend of the young Dolly in the TV pic.
In a review by the Los Angeles Times they the relate on the writing of the special: ” Much of Long’s best writing — again, not surprising, given her background — occurs in the scenes between Parton’s parents as they work out their difficulties and differences, and Schroder and Nettles take their measure nicely.”
