She is the comic legend who launched the modern sitcom, and became America’s sweetheart for over four decades. Now, the Travel Channel takes you on a tour through the incredible life of the world’s favorite redhead: Lucille Ball. As we visit the places that shaped her rise to the title of “Lucy: TV’s Comedy Queen”, we also tell the story behind the success of “I Love Lucy”, the troubled marriage between Ball and her husband/co-star, Desi Arnaz, and the Desilu Empire that rose and fell with them. In this program, there are stories that have never been told before, with colorful, often poignant observations from the artists who worked with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz during their extraordinary rise to fame, from Jamestown, New York (Ball’s birthplace) and Santiago De Cuba (Arnaz’s birthplace), to New York City, Hollywood, and Beverly Hills.
