KFC, Lifetime and Mario Lopez are serving a recipe for seduction.

While those classic herbs and spices are a mystery, is it a recipe for seduction? KFC has partnered with Lifetime and Mario Lopez to re-imagine the story behind the that iconic recipe. With a little intrigue and a lot of flavor, this food tale needs to be told.

KFC finds creative ways to make the holidays just a little more festive. Whether it is the KFC Firelog or the special Mother’s Day greetings, holiday celebrations are never boring with KFC.

Although KFC is known for revamping its Colonel portrayals, this year the brand has expanded beyond that traditional commercial. In partnership with Lifetime, the new holiday Lifetime Original Mini-Movie, “A Recipe for Seduction,” shows that food, love and betrayal make for tasty intrigue.

Staring Mario Lopez as Harland Sanders, this 15-minute movie might make you crave some KFC. Check out this preview clip.

Many people love curling up on the couch and watching Lifetime movies. Whether it is the perfect love story that makes people dream of the happily ever after or the distraction from the daily grind, that time on the couch is a great way to unwind.

Andrea Zahumensky, KFC U.S. CMO said, “we could all use a little distraction this holiday season, so why not fill some of your time at home with a suspenseful drama and the comfort of our world-famous fried chicken?”

“A Recipe for Seduction” shares how a handsome, young chef derails a mother’s plan for her heiress daughter. Whether it is the chef’s secret fried chicken recipe that entices the young girl or air of mystery, the holiday affair ignites. But will the flames burn brightly or will someone douse the love affair too soon?
