Desperate for a way to spend more time together, which meant getting Desi off the road, the pair created I Love Lucy. To prove that they could make the sitcom work, Arnaz and Ball formed Desilu Productions (the very first independent television production company) and used $5,000 of their own money to produce the pilot for I Love Lucy. In doing so, Arnaz and Ball made themselves their own bosses, and provided their product to CBS rather than working for the network or a sponsor.
Lucille Ball. The world could use more comedians like her, she didn't use dirty references to be funny, and guess what!? She is considered one of the funniest women on EARTH. nowadays people aren't even interested in seeing a movie/show that doesn't have any dirt in it.(-_-) When all these stupid shows come on making sex jokes or whatever, it disturbs me. honestly! how tacky is that!?
