Dolly Parton is set to ring in the holiday season with a new Christmas special on NBC, which reportedly announced the upcoming movie-musical on Monday (May 16). Parton will star in Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas, which tells the modern story about the making of a network TV special. Here’s the full description, per NBC:

“A modern-day movie musical about the making of a network TV special, Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas is the frenetic backstage story and delightful on-camera results of Dolly’s desire to uplift an exhausted world’s spirits by sharing the unique ‘mountain magic’ she has always found in and around Dollywood at Christmas. Throughout the movie’s production numbers and rehearsal chaos, Dolly finds herself taking a private journey into her past, guided by the mysterious appearances of her personal Three Wise Men. When it’s time for her big special to air live, a renewed and inspired Dolly goes rogue and shows the world that the real magic of Christmas lies in the hearts of the children we all once were, the realization that Christmas is about the people we share it with, and how her faith remains the common thread between Christmases past, present, and future.”

David Rambo is set to write and executive produce the movie-musical, along with Sam Haskell and Parton. Billy Levin and Bobby Kelly will produce, and Hudson Hickman will co-executive produce, according to NBC. NBC has not announced the release date as of publication time.
