Dolly Parton is bringing Christmas to Netflix!

The 74-year-old entertainer’s song “Christmas On The Square” – off of her upcoming holiday album A Holly Dolly Christmas – will be turned into a movie on the streaming site.

Dolly will produce the movie, and star in it alongside Christine Baranski, Jenifer Lewis, Treat Williams, and Jeanine Mason. Grey’s Anatomy star Debbie Allen will be directing the movie.

Christmas On The Square follows Christine as Regina, “a rich and nasty woman who returns to her small hometown after her father’s death to evict everyone and sell the land to a mall developer — right before Christmas. However, after listening to stories of the local townsfolk, reconnecting with an old love, and accepting the guidance of an actual angel (Parton), Regina starts to have a change of heart,” according to THR.

Christmas On The Square will be released on Netflix on November 22!
