It sounds like the parking pawl mechanism has broken or jammed, you will need to drop the transmission pan, be ready for fluid to come out when doing it. This video will show how to drop the pan, and I have included how the parking pawl works so you can see what's going on once the pan is removed:

Check out the diagrams (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.
