Yes, you read that right. We’re getting Mario Lopez – Mario Lopez, of all people, playing Colonel Sanders in an original Lifetime mini movie (or long commercial, whatever you want to call it) titled, I kid you not, A Recipe for Seduction – which is billed as a “Lifetime Original Mini-Movie Presented by Kentucky Fried Chicken.”
The mini-movie will premiere on Lifetime December 13th.
You think this sounds like a trainwreck waiting to happen? You haven’t even watched the trailer yet:
Here’s the synopsis: “As the holidays near, an heiress (played by Bosch alum Justene Alpert) contends with the affections of a suitor handpicked by her mother. When the handsome chef arrives with his secret recipe and a dream, he sets in motion a series of events that unravel the mother’s plans.”
