Mario Lopez to Star as Colonel Sanders in KFC-Inspired Lifetime Movie ‘A Recipe For Seduction’

This is real folks.

Lifetime has a new original movie starring Mario Lopez — as Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Colonel Harland Sanders.

The 15-minute short film, named “A Recipe For Seduction” premieres Sunday, Dec. 13 at noon.

“We’re no strangers to heating things up for the holidays, just like our famous fried chicken-scented fire log. But let’s face it, we could all use a little distraction this holiday season, so why not fill some of your time at home with a suspenseful drama and the comfort of our world-famous fried chicken?” said KFC U.S. CMO Andrea Zahumensky in a statement. “A Recipe for Seduction is a perfect excuse to curl up at home and escape to your own happily ever after.”

After the short film’s premiere, Lifetime will air another new movie from Lopez, a holiday romance called ”FelizNaviDad” that looks more up our alley.
