Dolly Parton and Danica McKellar to Star in ‘Christmas at Dollywood’ Movie for Hallmark (Exclusive)

Dolly Parton is bringing Dollywood to Hallmark!

The legendary country singer is teaming up with Hallmark Channel to bring her amusement park to the small screen with an original holiday movie starring Danica McKellar, titled Christmas at Dollywood, ET has exclusively learned. Filming kicks off in Tennessee in August.

Parton will make a special appearance in the film, which is slated to premiere in December as part of the network’s 10th anniversary of Countdown to Christmas. (The nine-week campaign launches Oct. 25 and runs through New Year’s Day.) McKellar’s mother, Mahaila, and son, Draco, will also have cameos.

In Christmas at Dollywood, Rachel Lewis (McKellar) is a single mom and award-winning Broadway producer who learns investors have mismanaged her latest theatrical — a holiday extravaganza — into bankruptcy, forcing the show to close before it even opens. Dismayed, Rachel’s friend calls from Tennessee to tell her about an opportunity to produce a show for the 20th anniversary of the Smoky Mountain Christmas Festival at Dollywood. The only caveat? Rachel will have to work with Luke Hakman, Dollywood’s entertainment director who sees the holiday show as a stepping stone to become the park’s new general manager. 

With her 9-year-old daughter, Amy, in tow, Rachel leaves New York City to return to her Appalachian mountain roots. Every night, as she tucks Amy into bed, she tells her a new Adventures of Amy story with the hopes of compiling the bedtime stories into a book someday. One night, Rachel tells Amy about a little girl following Santa Claus on his route. Using the stars as her guide, fantasy Amy travels with Santa to the Northern Lights. Rachel tells her daughter that the lights are so magical that Amy can always look to the night sky to find her way home. Is this inspiration for a new Dollywood show? Rachel seems to think so, though
