If you enjoyed Dolly Parton’s two original films based off her song “Coat Of Many Colors” for NBC (and if the ratings were any indication, you probably did), then you will get eight more chances to delve into the magic behind some of Dolly Parton’s most iconic songs in a new 8-part film anthology that is coming to Netflix.
More movies based off the iconic songs of Dolly Parton are on the way, and this time they will be distributed through the streaming giant Netflix. Announced this week, Dolly Parton has signed with the subscription service to debut eight new movies based off of her legendary songs in the coming months and years.
Netflix released the latest season of its comedy drama ‘The Ranch’ on December 15th, and just like the first three seasons, country music plays a big role in both the dialog and the soundtrack. Apparently the creators want to make discovering the songs part of the fun of the series, because they keep their soundtrack close to the vest.
Music, and country music specifically plays a big role in the series, not just in the soundtrack, but in many of the jokes told, and in the titles of each episode. Many other musical Easter eggs are placed throughout the series for music fans, such as posters on the wall, and albums in the local bar’s juke box.
Reviews and opinions on the Netflix original series The Ranch starring Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, Debra Winger, and Sam Elliot continue to be mixed, but the country music tie-ins—whether in the soundtrack, the set, or the dialogue—continue to make it a point of intrigue for many country fans.
Reviews have been mixed for the show so far, but country music listeners may have an extra incentive to watch the program. Featured on the 10-episode series has been a slew of independent country artists who will hopefully see decent paydays and a bump in exposure. There are also ample country music references and jokes in the series.
