Many are questioning whether or not A Recipe For Seduction, the upcoming KFC movie, is actually a joke.
Just when you think 2020 couldn’t get any stranger – it does. But this time it’s not in a world-ending pandemic sort of way. KFC and Lifetime have revealed that they are teaming up for a holiday mini-movie. Aptly titled A Recipe For Seduction, the film is said to have a good dose of mystery, suspense, deception, “fowl” play and – at the heart of it all – love and fried chicken.
The announcement also included the release of a full-length trailer and a promotional movie poster.

A Recipe For Seduction is part of Lifetime’s “It’s A Wonderful Lifetime” movie slate which has been an enduring fan-favourite for holiday content. The first-of-its-kind 15-minute film stars Saved By The Bell alum and Extra host, Mario Lopez as Colonel Harland Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame.
Described as a steamy holiday love affair, the story follows a young heiress who has to contend with the affections of a suitor handpicked by her mother. But 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?
Additionally, KFC and Uber Eats are offering a special promotion in conjunction with the film. Viewers will be able to get six free extra crispy chicken tenders with a purchase of $20 or more from the chain. This offer will be available to fans in the United States between December 13th through December 19th via UberEats.com or the mobile app.
A Recipe For Seduction debuts on Lifetime on Sunday, December 13th before heading to the network’s streaming platforms. So, no, it’s not a joke.
