OK! Are you sitting down? Dolly Parton is on board for a '9 to 5' TV reboot!

Dolly Parton is reportedly all in for the '9 to 5' remake with the girls. Dolly, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin starred in the hit 1980s film that was a strong feminist narrative for women in the workforce. The movie is getting a modern makeover by 20th Century Fox. The studio is turning the 1980s hit film into a television series.


Even though the movie came out nearly 38 years ago, '9 to 5' gave us all a catchy theme song and very quotable lines. The theme of the movie resonates strongly today; something that Dolly and her former co-stars agree with.

In an interview with 'Nightline' Dolly said that she, Jane and Lily have been interested in doing a reboot of '9 to 5'. “We’re trying to get the script and all that. Everybody is very interested and we’ve all agreed that we’d love to do it if it’s right,” she said.

20th Century Fox is already working on their reboot series. The production house is said to be taking on the narrative of the 1980 film for a more modern audience. Apparently, 20th Century Fox had presented the idea to Dolly and she immediately said yes.

Deadline reported that Rashida Jones is being roped in by 20th Century Fox to work on the script. The story is said to follow the careers of three young women, facing 'sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigoted' male bosses. The three original stars of '9 to 5' also will join the new cast, offering sage advice on how to get even.
