If all you were wishing for this holiday season was an origin story for KFC’s Colonel Sanders, you’re in luck. Lifetime just announced a mini-movie titled A Recipe For Seduction starring Mario Lopez as a young Sanders.

Revealed via the official Lifetime twitter account, the film will premiere on December 13th at 3 p.m. EST/12 p.m. PST on Lifetime.

A subsequent trailer was released showcasing Mario Lopez as the young Harland Sanders, who isn’t sporting his signature white hair quite yet, but rather a salt-and-pepper look. In typical Lifetime movie fashion, the film appears to be filled with plenty of spicy moments including a dangerous love triangle and the revelation of Sanders’ “secret recipe that will change the world.”

KFC is no stranger to unexpected medium crossovers, though. Late last year the company released a free anime-style dating simulator on Steam titled I Love You, Colonel Sanders that allowed players to romance the Colonel himself, albeit a much younger version.

Earlier this year, KFC opened an island in Animal Crossing that included a virtual restaurant and coupons for a free bucket of chicken that could be redeemed outside your virtual life, you know, in the real world.

Oh, and let’s not forget that fried chicken-scented firelog KFC released last year just in time for the holidays.

What’s next for the Colonel? A Kentucky Fried collab for some new shoes? Oh wait, he already did that with chicken Crocs. Well, whatever it is, it’ll surely catch us by surprise.
