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!
