Also added to the Jolene mix is actor Dallas Roberts, who will play Aaron, "a loving husband and father wrestling with the marathon of marriage as well as the imminent threat of a mid-life crisis."

The series will make its debut sometime in 2019.
Jolene is just a small part of what has been quite a year for Parton. In addition to the new show, she will also release her movie Dumplin’ in select theaters and on Netflix on Dec. 7.
