NBC rebroadcasts its 2016 movie Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love—a sequel to Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors—December 27 at 9 PM ET.
The sequel, according to NBC, “is the next chapter in the life of young Dolly Parton. The film delivers Christmas joy and peril as an unexpected blizzard threatens the Parton family, while at the same time Dolly’s father (and his kids) make sacrifices to raise enough money to finally buy his loving wife the wedding ring he could never afford to give her. Meanwhile, an important person in little Dolly’s life begins to see that her amazing voice and musical gift might just be made for something bigger than rural Tennessee.”
The original cast returns, including Jennifer Nettles as Avie Lee Parton, Ricky Schroder as Robert Lee Parton, Gerald McRaney as Rev. Jake Owens, and Alyvia Alyn Lind as young Dolly Parton. Stephen Herek again directs.
