Get the Real Story of the Empire that Lucy & Desi Built with Lucy and Desi (Trailer)

Nicole Kidman, Javier Bardem, and Aaron Sorkin have made a lot of noise with their biopic, Being the Ricardos. That said, no amount of painstaking detail in a biopic that can tell as much truth as in-depth documentary.

That’s why Amy Poehler’s upcoming documentary Lucy and Desi will undoubtedly be required viewing. Poehler will dive into one of Hollywood’s first power couples as well as their production company, Desilu Productions and Lucille having to deal with being labeled as a communist and more. Intimate audio tapes and home movies are spliced in with classic footage of I Love Lucy and the expected abundance of interviews from many comedy folks, both contemporaries and those who she inspired.

Look for Lucy and Desi to drop on Amazon Prime on Mar. 4th. In the meantime, see all of this for yourself in the trailer here.
