“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Color” Wins Hearts of Millions

Dolly Parton

“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” captivated the hearts of 13 million when the TV-movie aired on NBC Thursday night.

The heartwarming film about following your dreams, having faith and keeping love alive despite tough times attracted 13 million viewers and a 1.8 in adults 18-49. It was the most watched movie on broadcast TV in more than 3 years.

Reviewers across the country raved about the NBC TV-movie:

Los Angeles Times, Dec. 10, 2015
“‘Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors’ manages to be clear- and misty-eyed at once”
“Like Parton’s music, it manages to be somehow clear- and misty-eyed at once, a mix of the natural and the sentimental”
“…a handsome piece, with some sweet performances.”
– Robert Lloyd

Huffington Post, Dec. 10, 2015
“Lind has a winning screen presence. In fact, she dominates the film…”
“Dolly Parton offers to wrap you up for two hours in a world that’s cozy, comforting and warm.”
– David Hinckley

Washington Post, Dec. 9, 2015
“Leave it to Dolly Parton to bring out an innocuously sweet, faith-based, prime-time Christmas movie right in the middle of a religious and political culture war …”
“… pure-hearted and credible…”
– Hank Stuever

The film is set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955. It is neither a biopic nor musical about Parton’s whole life and performing career, but rather a family-oriented faith-based story about the incidents in her and her family’s life around the time she was 9 years old.

“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” will stream for 25 days from broadcast on, NBC apps and Set-Top Box On Demand.

  2. Chiropractic is taken into account one of the efficient and most
    secure types of different health management techniques.
    A commonly used procedure for relieving headache pain by chiropractors is manual manipulation,
    however, with this unique hand held device a chiropractic adjustment is now able to be delivered without the twisting, cracking, or popping.
    While treating for these problems, chiropractors offer lifestyle advice too.
