Dolly Parton is headed to Netflix. 

According to Deadline, Netflix has ordered an anthology series based on tunes from Parton's songbook. 

Parton will appear in the series that will span eight-episode and also, serve as executive producer. 

“As a songwriter, I have always enjoyed telling stories through my music,” Parton said in a statement. “I am thrilled to be bringing some of my favorite songs to life with Netflix. We hope our show will inspire and entertain families and folks of all generations, and I want to thank the good folks at Netflix and Warner Bros. TV for their incredible support.”

Each episode will be inspired by a different tune, although, for now, no word on which songs will be used. 

This isn't Parton's first go-around with TV and her music merging into one; in 2015, NBC produced the Christmas films Coat of Many Colors and Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love based on the country legends songs.
