Dolly Parton’s The New Queen Of TV!

Country music superstar reigns over the boob tube thanks to movie triumph!


Buxom country music queen Dolly Parton has conquered the boob tube! The singer’s new TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” aired on NBC in early December — and was the most watched network TV movie in the last five years, with over 15 million viewers!

Those numbers were so big that NBC decided to rerun the movie — starring Alyvia Alyn Lind of “The Young and the Restless” as a 9-year-old Dolly — on Christmas night!

The success of the two-hour movie, based on Dolly’s hit 1971 ballad about being cruelly teased for wearing a coat made of rags, is great news for Dolly’s fans!

Insiders said the network is going to launch a series of movies inspired by Dolly’s songs.

There’s no word yet which songs will get small-screen treatment, but Dolly’s fans can keep on the lookout for rebroadcasts of “Joyful Noise,” “Straight Talk,” “9 to 5” and other Parton pictures!
