On November 30, Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors was seen by almost 12 million people; and now, it’s set to re-air on NBC on Friday, December 23, at 8 p.m.
The story of a Christmas miracle from Dolly Parton’s childhood was the sequel to last year’s hit “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” and the two films have combined to rank as NBC’s two highest rated movies in the past seven years. The films have also become the two most watched movies on broadcast television in the last four-and-a-half years, according to NBC. Ole Miss alum and longtime friend of the country music icon, Sam Haskell, is the producer of the films and is overjoyed to see his films touching the lives of so many.
“Dolly and I were so thrilled that our sequel to the original ‘Coat of Many Colors’ was so successful. ‘Christmas of Many Colors – Circle of Love’ was the #1 show in total viewers giving NBC record breaking numbers. This successful airing proves that people in this country want something positive and good to hold onto. We want our movies to touch the hearts of America,” Haskell said.
The film was also released on DVD earlier this week, and can be purchased in stores across the country or on Amazon.
