"She does so many things, and now she has a big show deal herself at Netflix, so I don't know". Parton's Dixie Pixie Productions is partnering with Warner Bros.

"As a songwriter, I have always enjoyed telling stories through my music", Parton said.

At a For Your Consideration Emmys event for Grace and Frankie this past weekend, Lily Tomlin let slip that her 9 to 5 co-star, country music queen Dolly Parton, is coming to Netflix in a new anthology series based on Parton's songs.

The series will span eight episodes, each one inspired by a different Parton song. "TV for their incredible support", says Parton, who is now wrapping production on the music for the upcoming film Dumplin', to be released as a soundtrack album via Dolly Records/Sony Music Nashville. The Netflix project will be produced by Parton's Dixie Pixie Productions and Sam Haskell's Magnolia Hill Entertainment in association with Warner Bros Television. In 2015, Parton teamed with Warner Bros.to produce "Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors" for NBC, which drew 13 million viewers in its first run. Every episode of the series will be based on a hit song in her catalogue. Currently, she's finishing up writing music for the upcoming film "Dumplin'" starring Jennifer Aniston.
