Is Dolly Parton Joining The Netflix Family? Lily Tomlin Has The Scoop At ‘Grace And Frankie’ Panel

When I asked Tomlin and co-star Jane Fonda (on the panel with Martin Sheen, Sam Waterston, and co-creators/Exec Producers Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris) if Dolly Parton might be a future guest star on their show, both said they would love it but Tomlin interjected that she may be too busy as she has her own Netflix project coming up, apparently a series of films ala her NBC movie Coat Of Many Colors. Fonda was stunned to hear this , as was a Netflix representative I spoke to about it afterwards. Tomlin seemed to think it wasn’t a secret as she explained it would be based on Parton’s songs, and when I asked if Dolly would be starring she said “yes, when the script called for it”. – Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood
