Back in December, Dolly Parton were overjoyed when the movie Coat of Many Colors, which was based on her life growing up in poverty in Tennessee, debuted on NBC to rave reviews.
Now, NBC has announced that they will be releasing the film on DVD on May 3 after it became the number 1 movie on broadcast television in the last six years with 15.9 million viewers.
According to Taste of Country, the DVD will come with various special features, including deleted scenes and a featurette from Parton in which she talks about how her hit song came to life on film. She will also talk about her personal story behind the song-turned-movie as well.
Coat of Many Colors tells the story of Parton growing up in a big, poor family in Tennessee that only had their love and faith in God to get them through the tough times. The film focuses on the difficult summer of 1955, when Parton’s mother sadly lost a baby, and the toll that took on her family.
We can’t wait to buy this amazing movie on DVD!
