But now that we know it's going to be out there, we might not be able to resist the urge to watch it... just like how we can't really resist a KFC drumstick.

It's that time of the year where Hallmark will be blessing us with terrible festive season movies, but in a very unexpected turn of events, lifetime has announced that it will be releasing a Christmas movie about the legendary Colonel Sanders.

The mini-movie is called, 'A Recipe For Seduction', and follows the tale of a young heiress who falls in love with the man responsible for one of the most iconic fried chicken recipes in the world.

Unfortunately, her mother wants to stop the chicken from crossing the road, by not allowing the two lovebirds to be together.

The movie will be available on Lifetime's website from the 13th of December and we just can't wait to see Mario Lopez portray the role of spice-master.

It is important to note that it is still a mini-movie and will only take up 15 minutes of your time, but we're pretty sure after watching it, you'll feel like it was time well spent.
