Amazing Producers: Dolly Parton

When people think of Dolly Parton, they think of her singing, down home country charm and enormous.... heart. But few know that she also has a successful production company.

So, what types of shows has she produced? Country music programming? Variety shows? Believe it or not, Dolly Parton's Sandollar Productions was responsible for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.

Ms. Parton's other successful business enterprises include the Dollywood theme park and a chain of musical theaters. Her amazing versatility is best summed up with a quote from Dolly herself:

“I’m not going to limit myself just because people won’t accept the fact that I can do something else.”
