Desilu Trivia

Television’s I Love Lucy began as a radio show, My Favorite Husband, in which Lucy played the scheming wife of a bank vice president. CBS wanted to move the show to television—but almost scrapped the idea because of Lucy’s insistence that Desi Arnaz play her husband. Lucy persisted and finally got her way—the rest is TV history.

Indeed. Thank you for writing about my favorite show of all time. I have all the seasons on DVD, and I still laugh till I cry when I watch it!

CBS never believed that America would buy a woman married to a Cuban man....even though they were married off-screen@
