Dolly-and-Noleen-480In Dolly Parton’s special double length episode, The Salty Chicken, which will air next year, Dolly voices Noleen, a famous singing chicken.

Starting on Nick Jr. in the UK on 6th June and Sprout in the US on 27th June, the new series will also feature actor and comedian Rob Brydon as a handsome silver fox.

He commented: “Lily’s Driftwood Bay is a lovely, beautifully made show, and it’s always great to do jobs that my younger children can watch and enjoy. There’s something magical about good children’s programmes, and it’s lovely to be a part of that.”

Show creator and producer, Colin Williams, added: “What a thrill to welcome Dolly and Rob to Driftwood Bay. We have three generations of Lily fans, and I was looking for two special people who are loved by all three generations to be our special guest. The Salty Chicken was the first story outline that we wrote for series two and it was always Dolly that I wanted. It took me a year to convince her but what an honour to meet her, work with her and have her part of our special show. She’s an amazing and lovely lady – and a Lily fan too.”
