Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings are inspired by the veteran singer-songwriter’s most iconic songs. Each episode will feature a different standalone story with a whole different cast. Parton is expected to appear in some of the stories and will begin each of the episode with an introduction by talking or singing about the meaning behind each song.

The second episode will be set in the 1940s, where it will follow the story of a determined D.C. lawyer who returns to her small Smoky Mountain hometown to prove herself professionally when a mysterious old mountain woman, who locals believe to be a fortune teller, threatens a lumber company’s business. What results is a test of faith along with shocking secrets from the past.

Goodwin will play the role of Genevieve while Turner and Bornheimer are set to play the roles of Ms. Mary Shaw a.k.a Old Bones and Landon respectively. These Old Bones will be directed by Joe Lazarov with Jim Strain to serve as the episode’s writer.
