A recipe for seduction looks great – if you are into lifelong love movies and have a passion for KFC.
With Saved by the bell Star and extra Host Mario Lopez as world famous Colonel Sanders, mini film A recipe for seduction tells the spicy story of a young cook with a secret fried chicken recipe that disrupts a woman’s plan to marry her heiress to a handpicked suitor.
The internet exploded with memes and jokes on Monday after the promotional movie poster – featuring Lopez in Sanders’ white shirt, black tie, glasses and goatee, and a young woman in a red dress – made the rounds.
Others on social media lamented the “movie” saying it was just “a long KFC commercial”.
Still, the network believes it will be a success.
“Lifetime is the perfect vacation home to bring this flavorful, unexpected story to life,” said David DeSocio, EVP of A + E Networks for advertising sales, marketing and partnerships. “With a wink to the unique sensibilities celebrated in Lifetime movies, this co-production illuminates the POV of each brand and marries them in a fun and authentic way.”
DeSocio also said the mini-movie will be a great “2020 distraction” from all things.
Unfortunately for Canadians, Lifetime Canada won’t be broadcasting the special. It will premiere in the US on December 13th at 12:00 PM CET.
KFC, a unit of Yum! Brands Inc. asked American viewers to curl up with a bucket of chicken to watch the 15-minute film.
