Dolly Parton hasn’t seen her 9 to 5 co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda‘s new Netflix series, Grace and Frankie, but she’s still open to joining them for a guest appearance.

Dolly says, “I told them whenever I get a little block of time, I’d love to come be on the show.”

Grace and Frankie has gotten great reviews and earned Tomlin an Emmy nomination for the first season. Dolly is proud of her friends’ success, and says they’ve been looking for something to do together since 9 to 5 was such a monster hit in 1980, but time isn’t on their side anymore.

Dolly says with a laugh, “It’s not gonna be 9 to 5. It’s gonna be The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and The Older, or it’s going to be 95 instead of 9 to 5.”

Dolly’s currently working on Coat of Many Colors, the first of a series of TV movies based on her songs as part of a deal with NBC. The network will premiere that movie this holiday season, and producers have announced plans to follow it up with a TV movie version of Dolly’s 1973 hit song, “Jolene.”
