According to The Wrap, Michael, 25, landed a major role in the TV movie, which is from Lifetime's Ripped from the Headlines series.

Step Up actress Jenna Dewan, 41, will play a fitness instructor named Sadie.

While teaching fitness during the day, Sadie runs a sophisticated prostitution ring at night. 

A small town is caught in an uproar after Sadie gets caught red-handed, as the authorities search the names on her client list. 

Let's Get Physical will make its debut on Lifetime on October 15th.

Kelly and Mark will also executive produce another Ripped From The Headlines movie, The Disappearance of Cari Farver, based on Leslie Rule’s true-crime book, A Tangled Web.

The cast includes Lea Thompson, Zach Gilford, and Alicia Witt.

The Disappearance of Cari Farver is scheduled to air on October 8th.

Michael previously played a younger version of Mark's character, Hiram Lodge, in the CW drama, Riverdale. 

The couple also shares two other children: son Joaquin Antonio, and daughter Lola Grace, 21, the latter who recently has been promoting her new song, Paranoia Silver Lining.

Kelly's daughter posted several TikTok teasers leading up to the release. 

MISSING KELLY?

Meanwhile, viewers noticed the hostess spent more than a week away from Live with Kelly and Ryan.

Ryan joked about Kelly's absence during a hilarious segment.

During the bargains shopping segment, the guest displayed customized embroidered pillows with various names.

While holding up the pillow made for Kelly, the guest said: "Kelly we miss you. We got you a Consuelos one."

Ryan said to the camera: "I heard she won the lottery. She's fine."

'THE BUTTERFLIES'

In the meantime, the American Idol host has been joined by various guest co-hosts, while Kelly has stepped away from her hosting duties.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Rinna recently filled in for Kelly and added a bit of spicy talk with Ryan.

The duo chatted about getting "the butterflies" when seeing one's romantic partner.

While the RHOBH star dished about her sex life, Ryan blurted out: "Please Kelly, I hope you're watching!"

Lisa agreed and added: "Yes, I hope you're watching." 

Ryan teased Kelly's marriage as he mentioned: "She feels that way about Mark, that I know."
