Half a century after its debut, “I Love Lucy” remains the most popular and influential sitcom phenomenon in TV history. Jess Oppenheimer, “the brains” of “I Love Lucy,” gives us an insider’s view of this groundbreaking show, generously interspersed with actual recordings of classic Lucy performances–including her famous “Vitameatavegamin” routine. Sounding much like an episode of “Lucy” itself, Oppenheimer weaves a wonderfully entertaining tale of the creation of this landmark show. Lucy aficionados will also delight in his personal accounts of stars such as Desi Arnaz, William Frawley, Vivian Vance, and of course, Lucille Ball. Read by three-time “I Love Lucy” veteran Larry Dobkin, and featuring comedy performances by Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Gale Gordon, Hans Conried, Bea Benaderet, Frank Nelson, and more! Published in hard cover as “Laughs, Luck…and Lucy: How I Came to Create the Most Popular Sitcom of All Time.”
