Dolly Parton is heading into the world of Netflix originals. The star has reportedly signed a deal with the streaming service to executive produce an eight-episode miniseries. Each episode will be inspired by one of her songs. Parton tweeted that the series, which is expected to debut in 2019, will be for “families and folks of all generations.”


Parton has over 800 songs in her discography so it’s anyone’s guess at this point which the series will be inspired by. She has worked on a similar project in the past, when she joined forces with NBC Universal to produce the made-for-TV movie Coat of Many Colors. It has been announced that Parton will be starring in some of the episodes in addition to producing the series.
