Dolly Parton will return to TV screens this winter in a new Hallmark movie, Christmas in Dollywood.
The upcoming flick, which stars Danica McKellar (The Wonder Years), will begin filming in Tennessee in August, according to Entertainment Tonight. Dolly will make a special appearance in the film, which is slated to be released in December as part of Hallmark’s 10th Countdown to Christmas campaign.
The movie stars Danica as Rachel, a single mom and Broadway producer who returns to her hometown roots—after suffering financial difficulty—to co-helm a production at Dollywood with its entertainment director, Luke. It’s likely the duo will clash before discovering love.
“As the pair meets in the middle to please the boss, little do Rachel and Luke realize love lurks in all the unexpected places because this isn’t the Great White Way. Or Hollywood. This is Dollywood!” reads the official logline.
