Dolly Parton anthology series Dolly Parton’s Heartstings has cast Colin O’Donoghue (Once Upon A Time) and Willa Fitzgerald (Scream: The TV Series).
The show explores the stories, memories and inspirations behind Parton’s most beloved songs.
David Denman (13 Hours), Mac Davis and Vanessa Rubio (Cobra Kai) round out the cast, joining Parton in the series which launches at once in 2019. In an episode titled “JJ Sneed” O’Donoghue plays JJ Sneed, Fitzgerald portrays Maddie, Denman is Deke Fletcher, Davis will play Reverend Riggs and Rubio is Cimmaron.
Set in the 1880s, the episode centers around a feisty young woman trapped in a mundane existence who dreams of more, until a seductive outlaw pulls her into the adventure of a lifetime.
Scored by new and classic Parton music, each stand-alone episode in Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings will begin with an introduction by Parton talking/singing to camera (as herself) about the meaning behind each song. Each episode will feature a different cast, and Parton will star/guest star in some.
