Mario Lopez is literally stepping into the role of a lifetime as Colonel Harland Sanders in A Recipe for Seduction. This new mini-movie was produced in a partnership between Kentucky Fried Chicken and Lifetime.
Yes, you read that correctly. Lifetime and Kentucky Fried Chicken have teamed up to produce a movie that promises “mystery, suspense, deception, and ‘fowl’ play.”
KFC Mini-Movie Essentially a 15 Minute Infomercial
The truth is that the movie is only 15 minutes long, and it’s essentially an infomercial–but it fits right in with Lifetime’s other offerings. A+E Networks marketing chief David DeSocio had a few words to share about A Recipe for Seduction:
Lifetime is the perfect holiday home to bring this spicy, unexpected tale to life. Through a terrific cast, and with a wink to the unique sensibilities celebrated in Lifetime movies, this co-production spotlights each brand’s POV and marries them in a fun and authentic way. A+E Networks delivers custom creative that our audiences and clients love.
