NBC announced this morning (May 11) the first original movie under its development deal with Dolly Parton. Coat of Many Colors is named after her 1971 track and will be based on the singer’s childhood. The movie will be part of NBC’s event programming for next season.

NBC and Parton announced a deal in January that will produce a series of standalone TV movies based on Parton’s songs, stories and life.

Parton will serve as executive producer for Coat of Many Colors and will possibly appear in some future productions.
