Dolly Parton at Hallmark’s Christmas in Dollywood: See first Photographs

Hello, Dolly — and Danica!

A queen of country (that could be Dolly Parton) and a queen of Hallmark Christmas movies (you know her as Danica McKellar) have united festive forces to star in one of Hallmark Channel’s marquee holiday TV movies, Christmas in Dollywood.

Airing Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. on Hallmark Channel, Christmas in Dollywood follows Rachel (McKellar), an event planner and single mother who yields to her Appalachian roots to plan Dollywood’s 30th annual Smoky Mountain Christmas extravaganza. There is only 1 problem: This event needs to be massive and sparkly, yet Rachel has been paired with an uninspired operations director (Niall Matter). Parton plays herself in the movie, as, well, she is Dolly Freakin’ Parton.

As you can see in these first-look photos below, Christmas was accepted to its glamorous extreme at Dollywood, complete with giant candy cane folks and what could only be described as individual snow globes.
