Synopsis by Mark Deming
I Love Lucy was television's first great situation comedy. It helped establish the style and perimeters of the form, became an enduring audience favorite, and turned a pair of show-biz also-rans into two of the biggest and most powerful names in show business. Inside Television's Greatest: I Love Lucy is a documentary that takes a behind-the-scenes look at how this legendary TV series came to be, what made it great, and how the show eventually fell apart. Included are interviews with Desi Arnaz Jr. (son of the show's stars Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz), television pioneer Steve Allen, and author Geoffrey Mark Fidelman.
