Netflix announced on Wednesday it has picked up US and global rights to "Dumplin", a comedic drama starring Jennifer Aniston and "Patti Cakes$" star Danielle Macdonald.

Netflix has acquired Dumplin, a film about a plus-size teenage daughter of a former beauty queen who adores Dolly Parton and her music. Anne Fletcher is directing the musical comedy from a script by Kristin Hahn.

Parton, who is an acclaimed songwriter/storyteller and one of the most honored female country performers of all time, contributed newly-recorded collaborations of some of her most popular songs in addition to six new original compositions co-written by Parton and Grammy nominee Linda Perry. This self-penned song was originally recorded by Parton and included on her Coat of Many Colors album (October 1971).
