This week, the Independent reported that Dolly Parton was partially responsible for hit drama Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as she owns the company that executive produced the show, Sandollar Entertainment.
The company produced a number of films throughout the ’80s and ’90s, including Father of the Bride the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer series ran from 1997 to 2003 on The WB/UPN and quickly became a cult classic, not to mention a critical darling.
While Gallin and Berman are both credited as executive producers on Buffy as well as spinoff series Angel, Parton is not explicitly credited for the series.
“I was today years old when I found out that Dolly Parton was an uncredited executive producer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” tweeted the user who kickstarted Dolly-mania.
The Dolly Parton-produced Buffy the Vampire Slayer is currently available to stream on Hulu.
