Born August 6, 1911 d. 1989
American Emmy-winning comedienne. TV: I Love Lucy (1951-57) and The Lucy Show (1962-68). She and husband Desi Arnaz created the television show I Love Lucy and in 1962, Ball became the first woman to run a major television studio – Desilu Productions, whose productions included I Love Lucy, Mission: Impossible, The Untouchables, and Star Trek. Desilu Productions also pioneered a number TV production methods, such as filming before a live studio audience with a number of cameras and distinct sets adjacent to each other.
The standard at the time was to broadcast live in New York, and use a lower-quality kinescopes for the rest of the country. Desi Arnaz wanted to film the shows live so that all audiences received a high-quality image. Network executives considered the use of film too expensive, so Arnaz agreed to cover the costs in exchange for the rights to the prints. As a result, Desilu made a fortune from the reruns in what is considered one of the shrewdest deals in television history.
