Order a KFC bucket meal for delivery, and cosy up with Mario Lopez as Colonel Harland Sanders in the KFC-branded Lifetime Original Mini-Movie premiere
Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) and Lifetime are teaming up to bring consumers the perfect distraction from all things 2020: the holiday Lifetime Original Mini-Movie, “A Recipe for Seduction.”
Featuring veteran actor and star of Lifetime’s FelizNaviDAD Mario Lopez as Colonel Harland Sanders, the first-of-its-kind 15-minute Lifetime Original Mini-Movie is full of mystery, suspense, deception, “fowl” play and – at the heart of it all – love and fried chicken. “A Recipe For Seduction” premieres on Lifetime Sunday, 13 December at 12 pm ET/PT.
To enhance the viewing experience of deep-fried holiday romance, consumers can order the fast-food brand on Uber Eats for delivery and get six free extra crispy tenders with a US$20/£14.9 purchase or more.
Whilst enjoying the delicious taste of the Colonel’s secret 11 Herbs & Spices, viewers can share in all the drama of this steamy holiday love affair as they watch a young heiress contend with the affections of a suitor handpicked by her mother. But when a handsome, young chef with a secret fried chicken recipe and a dream arrives, he sets in motion a series of events that unravel the mother’s devious plans.
“We’re no stranger to heating things up for the holidays, just like our famous fried chicken-scented Firelog. But let’s face it, 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?” said Andrea Zahumensky, KFC US CMO. “‘A Recipe for Seduction’ is a perfect excuse to curl up at home and escape to your own happily ever after.”
“A Recipe for Seduction” is Lifetime and KFC’s first-ever branded custom mid-form content. The Lifetime Original Mini-Movie is a playful addition to Lifetime’s It’s A Wonderful Lifetime movie slate, which continues to be the fan-favourite destination for holiday content. After its linear premiere, “A Recipe for Seduction” will continue to be available throughout the holiday season on mylifetime.com/christmas-movies, all Lifetime apps, and video-on-demand (VOD) platforms.
“Lifetime is the perfect holiday home to bring this spicy, unexpected tale to life,” said David DeSocio, EVP, Ad Sales Marketing & Partnerships, A+E Networks. “Through a terrific cast, and with a wink to the unique sensibilities celebrated in Lifetime movies, this co-production spotlights each brand’s POV and marries them in a fun and authentic way. A+E Networks delivers custom creative that our audiences and clients love.”
Mario Lopez (Colonel Harland Sanders) stars in Lifetime’s FelizNaviDAD, part of It’s A Wonderful Lifetime’s holiday movie slate. FelizNaviDAD will encore on Lifetime directly following “A Recipe for Seduction.”
From cosy scents for your fireplace like the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog to vintage-inspired holiday buckets that bring a sense of nostalgia, KFC is spreading warmth and joy this holiday season with a fun film and a mouth-watering Uber Eats offer to help fans end this unpredictable year on a high note.
So whilst the holidays may look a bit different this year, let KFC do the heavy lifting to provide a comforting meal that the entire family will enjoy.
