Dolly Parton is coming to Atlanta!

The country music legend is shooting a Netflix anthology based on some of her songs called “Dolly Parton Theater.”

Parton will executive produce and appear in the series, which has just begun production.

“As a songwriter, I have always enjoyed telling stories through my music,” Parton said in a release in June when the show was announced. “I am thrilled to be bringing some of my favorite songs to life with Netflix. We hope our show will inspire and entertain families and folks of all generations, and I want to thank the good folks at Netflix and Warner Bros. TV for their incredible support.”

There is a casting call here for extras for “Dolly Parton Theater.”

It appears at least some of the stories will be based in the 1940s based on the description for extras. 

Parton’s “9 to 5” co stars are also in a Netflix series “Grace & Frankie.”
