NETFLIX ROUNDS OUT CAST FOR "DOLLY PARTON'S HEARTSTRINGS"

Oscar winners Melissa Leo, Ray McKinnon, and Emmy winners Jessica Collins, Camryn Manheim, Tim Busfield, and Patricia Wettig are among 19 cast in upcoming anthology series.

The Dolly music you love, the stories you've been waiting for. Dolly Parton's Heartstrings is an anthology series that showcases the stories, memories, and inspirations behind her most beloved songs. New and classic Dolly music will score every episode. Each story will vary in tone, from love stories and inspirational tales to family dramas, westerns, and revenge comedies.

Each episode will begin with an introduction by Dolly talking/singing to camera (as herself) about the meaning behind each song. Dolly will also star/guest star in some stories. Each episode is a standalone story and will have a different cast.

Produced by Magnolia Hill Productions and Sandollar Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television for Netflix, Dolly Parton's Heartstrings will premiere in 2019. Executive producers include Sam Haskell, Dolly Parton, and Patrick Sean Smith (who also serves as showrunner).

Previously announced episode castings include "Jolene," "JJ Sneed," "These Old Bones," and "If I Had Wings."
