Mario Lopez Is Playing Colonel Sanders In A Totally Real Lifetime Mini-Movie That I Did Not Make Up

Lifetime debuted a trailer for A Recipe for Seduction, a mini-movie that it partnered with Kentucky Fried Chicken to bring into existence. What is basically a strange publicity stunt, the plot of the “film” is as follows:

A young heiress contends with the affections of a suitor handpicked by her mother. When the handsome chef, Harland Sanders, arrives with his secret fried chicken recipe and a dream, he sets in motion a series of events that unravels the mother’s devious plans. Will our plucky heiress escape to her wintry happily ever after with Harland at her side, or will she cave to the demands of family and duty?

Mario Lopez (Saved by the Bell) stars as Colonel Sanders (really) and is tied to an Uber Eats promotion where you can get six free extra crispy chicken tenders when you place an order of $20 or more from KFC.

Here is the trailer for the film, which premieres Sunday, December 13th at 12pm on Lifetime:
