Dolly Parton’s classic song ‘Jolene’ is set to be the next one of her tracks to be adapted into a TV movie.

The iconic country singer inked a development deal with bosses at America’s NBC network earlier this year to executive produce a number of stand-alone movies based on her life and music, said the Hollywood Reporter.

During the Television Critics Association summer press tour last evening, Parton, 69, said her 1973 song about a woman confronting a lady who she believes is trying to steal her man, will be turned into a film.

China Beach creator and The West Wing writer-producer John Sacret Young has been tapped to write the screenplay for “Jolene”.

The movie will be the second in Parton’s deal – her 1971 autobiographical track Coat of Many Colors has inspired a TV film, which will feature Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and former child star Ricky Schroder.
