About I Love Lucy

I Love Lucy (1951 – 1960) is an American sitcom that centers on an unforgettable showbiz-wannabe redhead, her Cuban bandleader husband, and their landlords, who also happen to be their best friends and co-conspirators.
Technically, I Love Lucy ended May 6, 1957 with the sixth-season episode “The Ricardos Dedicate a Statue.” This set, however, collects the 13 episodes of what can be considered the successor to I Love Lucy, known as The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour. First airing on November 6, 1957, the show was more an offering of hour-long specials rather than a regular series — it was often months between shows. Picking up where I Love Lucy left off, Lucy (Lucille Ball), husband Ricky (Desi Arnaz), and best friends Ethel (Vivian Vance), and Fred (William Frawley) continue their popular comedy formula honed during the original series.
