Last year, the first of NBC’s Dolly Parton movies brought in hordes of viewers looking for some comfort in the form of the childhood tales of the beloved country singer-songwriter. Now the network is at it again, reworking a few words in the title so it’s the Christmas Of Many Colors rather than the Coat Of Many Colors. Well, actually the full name is even more of a mouthful: It’s Dolly Parton’s Christmas Of Many Colors: Circle Of Love. The film brings back Alyvia Alyn Lind as the young Dolly, while Jennifer Nettles and Ricky Schroder play her parents. Meanwhile, Parton herself also appears as a character called The Painted Lady. The trailer makes The Painted Lady out to be a guardian angel-type figure for Parton’s younger self, but it’s worth noting that she’s got a bit of an R-rated edge: Parton is actually playing the “town trollop.” Christmas Of Many Colors premieres November 30.
