Congratulations if you had “Mario Lopez stars as a super fine version of KFC’s Colonel Sanders in a Lifetime movie” on your 2020 bingo card.
Fresh off the heels of starring in the “Saved By The Bell” reboot on Peacock and the Lifetime Christmas movie “Feliz NaviDAD,” Lopez aims to be the key to both your heart and stomach in the upcoming finger-lickin’ mini movie, “A Recipe For Seduction.”
The brainchild of Kentucky Fried Chicken and Lifetime, this romantic drama features Lopez as Harland Sanders, the handsome chef of a rich heiress and her mother. The mother has handpicked her daughter’s future husband, but Sanders (and his secret recipe) are causing all sorts of trouble when he and the daughter fall for each other.
While this sounds like some bizarre, yet thoroughly intriguing fanfiction, it’s 100% real as KFC strives for their strangest marketing ploy yet. The 15-minute flick airs on Sunday, December 13 at 12pm. And just to get a taste of what you’re in for, you can check out the trailer below.
