According to the NBC website, NBC.com, Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors is based on the inspiring true story of Dolly Parton's upbringing in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955.

"Faith, hope, family, forgiveness, love - that's what Coat of Many Colors is about, " Sam Haskell said in a phone interview with HottyToddy.com. "But, there are other really important messages in this movie other than that; like anti-bullying which was just as prevalent in the 50's as it is today, and it can be cruel."
Also joining the cast is Mary Lane Haskell, daughter of Executive Producer Sam Haskell and talented writer and actress, who will appear in the role of Miss Moody, Dolly's most influential grade school teacher.

"Dolly has been like my Aunt Dolly since I was probably 8-years-old," Mary Lane Haskell said during an interview with djournal.com, "So being able to be a part of telling her story was so special." Mary Lane talks more about the film in a behind-the-scenes interview with NBC. To watch the full video interview, visit: White House Correspondent Insider.
The film was written by Pamela K. Long and directed by Stephen Herek. Magnolia Hill Entertainment and DP Productions produced the film in association with Warner Brothers Television.
