NBC-TV has signed a development deal with DOLLY PARTON.
"I am so excited to be involved with my friend BOB GREENBLATT, who produced the BROADWAY version of '9 to 5: The Musical' with me, and my longtime friend and former agent SAM HASKELL," said DOLLY. "We want to create projects for NBC that are both fun and inspirational with a family audience in mind."
In conjunction with production partner SAM HASKELL of MAGNOLIA HILL ENTERTAINMENT and WARNER BROS. TELEVISION, NBC-TV will develop a slate of two-hour TV movies based on the songs, stories, and inspiring life of DOLLY PARTON. DOLLY will produce the projects.
"I don't know anyone in the world who doesn't love DOLLY PARTON, and the idea of developing television movies inspired by her incredible life and the stories she has sung about for decades is exciting to all of us at NBC," said NBC ENTERTAINMENT Chairman ROBERT GREENBLATT. "I hope we will create some uplifting movies that the entire family can enjoy together, a genre of programming that still seems largely untapped on television."
