Previews for Dolly Parton's new TV movie, Christmas of Many Colors, have been released, giving fans their first look at the upcoming holiday film.

In both clips, fans will also get to see Parton herself, who will make a cameo in the made-for-TV movie.
Christmas of Many Colors is the next chapter in the life of young Parton. During an unexpected blizzard, the Parton family — specifically, Parton’s father and his children — find themselves sacrificing their own wants and needs for a special gift for Parton’s mother, while an important person in Parton’s life starts to recognize that she is meant for musical stardom.
Parton’s first made-for-TV movie, Coat of Many Colors, aired in December of 2015 and earned 15.9 million viewers overall. It was the most-watched film on broadcast or cable TV in nearly seven years.
“I was so overwhelmed and touched by how many people watched Coat of Many Colors and their reaction to it,” Parton says. “I am so happy to share this story with the viewers and to say there is so much more to tell because mine truly has been a life of many colors. I hope the viewers will fall in love all over again.”
Coat of Many Colors director Stephen Herek has signed on once again for Christmas of Many Colors, with Pamela K. Long writing the script and Long, Sam Haskell and Parton acting as the movie’s executive producers. The film will premiere on Nov. 30 at 9PM ET on NBC; prior to its airing, Parton will take part in the Christmas in Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony, which will air on NBC at 8PM.
Parton is currently out on the road, supporting her new album, Pure & Simple, with her Pure & Simple Tour. In addition to Christmas of Many Colors, fans can also expect to see another made-for-TV movie from Parton, based on her song “Jolene,” soon.
