....to the Sitcom.

Used to love I Love Lucy.

Martin Jarvis directs a stellar cast in Gregg Oppenheimer's inside look at his writer- producer father's famous TV series, I Love Lucy.

Anne Heche channels Lucille Ball in an outstanding performance. With Wilmer Valderrama, Jared Harris, Alfred Molina, Stacy Keach, Mike McShane. The onscreen pairing of Lucille and Desi is brilliant, but the American Network is doubtful.

"Who’d believe she was married to him?"
Lucille: ‘But I am married to him!’

The serial dramatises more than just the creation of an iconic TV series - it charts the need to challenge existing ideas that balked at diversity, the comic dynamic of the Arnaz’s partnership, and their commitment and integrity shared by writer Jess Oppenheimer - resisting network and sponsor demands and outdated censorship rules, bringing creative bonuses to US audiences and worldwide.

I heard the whole series Becky and thoroughly enjoyed it, having watched "I Love Lucy" as a child on my Grandma's TV. "Fred" was a great favourite with all my family Very Happy

I remember it as the Lucy Show (think it followed on from I Love Lucy) and used to roar with laughter every week that it was on TV!
