Lifetime and KFC Are Teaming Up for a Sexy Colonel Sanders TV Movie

Some of the things people on the internet are the most obsessed with, aside from cats, are Lifetime and Hallmark Christmas movies, KFC and Saved by the Bell. So of course, KFC and Lifetime have made a sexy Colonel Sanders movie starring Mario Lopez.

The film is called A Recipe for Seduction and it airs next Sunday, December 13th. Here’s Lifetime’s description of the film.

As the holidays draw near, 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?

There’s also a trailer.

Okay, it’s basically just a 15-minute ad for KFC, but you still want to watch it, don’t you? You watched those Subway episodes of Community and liked them, they were basically just 21-minute ads with jokes about butt stuff.

This isn’t KFC’s first foray into unusual romance-themed marketing gimmicks; they previously released a romance novella featuring Colonel Sanders and a Colonel Sanders Dating Sim.  Someone st that company has totally dry-humped one of those statues they have outside the KFCs in Japan.

Lifetime is also no stranger to making parodies of the 100-odd movies they make earnestly every year. 2015’s A Deadly Adoption starred Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig and illustrated how all it takes to turn a Lifetime movie played completely straight into 90 minutes of absolute hilarity is to give the audience permission to realize how silly they are. I imagine A Recipe for Seduction will be handled similarly, only at the end you’re really going to want a famous bowl.
