NBC Will Present Encore Of “Coat Of Many Colors”
If you missed it the first time you have another chance to see it on Christmas Day. The airing of Dolly Parton's "Coat Of Many Colors" on December 10th drew huge ratings on NBC, so the network is presenting an encore presentation.
With an audience of 15.6 million viewers the TV movie ranks as the most-watched film on the four broadcast networks in more than six years. It's the first in what is planned to be a series of TV movies inspired by the life of Dolly Parton.
"Coat Of Many Colors" is based on incidents in the life and family of Dolly Parton in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in the 1950's.
"I hoped to bring some families together so they could sit and watch a move like this. I really wanted to celebrate the people, my whole family, who made me who and what I am today. I'm so blessed and thankful for everyone who watched and I hope this story reaches many, many more when NBC shows it Christmas night," said Parton.
The film will be re-broadcast on NBC Friday night, December 25th at 9 pm eastern.
