In yet another 2020 twist that absolutely no one saw coming, Mario Lopez is set to star as KFC's Colonel Sanders in an upcoming Lifetime mini-movie called Recipe for Seduction. According to Lifetime, Recipe for Seduction, a 15-minute real movie sponsored by KFC, is about a love triangle between a young heiress, a handsome suitor, and a chef named Harland Sanders who arrives to the heiress' estate with a "secret fried chicken recipe and a dream". The movie will premiere on Lifetime on Sunday, December 13, at 12PM, and will afterwards be available on streaming platforms. Watch the trailer below:
