Magnolia Hill Productions is a television production company founded by Sam Haskell, the former William Morris Executive Vice President and Worldwide Head of Television.
Established in 2013, in a development deal with Warner Bros television, Magnolia Hill was created to bring forth content reminiscent of “our” childhood classics.
Partnering with Dolly Parton, Magnolia Hill produced two TV movies for NBC based on the 9 time Grammy winner and country legend's life. The first picture, "Coat of Many Colors", aired on December 10, 2015, and drew more than 16 million live viewers making it the most viewed film on broadcast TV in over 6 years. The sequel, "Coat of Many Colors - Circle of Love", aired on November 30, 2016, and eclipsed 14.5 million live viewers. It later went on to be nominated for Best Television Movie at the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards.
Continuing its partnership with Dolly Parton, Magnolia Hill is currently producing multiple projects for Netflix including "Dolly Parton's Heartstrings", an 8-episode anthology series based on the singer/songwriter's songs and life stories.
