The First Woman to Run a Production Company was Lucille Ball’s legacy.
Millions of people know Lucille Ball as the Queen of Comedy, a woman who starred in one of the most popular television shows of all time, I Love Lucy.
Ball paved the way for comedians like Carol Burnett, Tina Fey, Kate McKinnon, and Amy Schumer by pioneering the role of women in comedy.
More fans than ever are discovering Ball’s genius, as well as her groundbreaking business actions, thanks to a new round of entertainment options focusing on her, including a new film starring Nicole Kidman.
Ball was the first woman to run a major production company in 1960, after she had established herself as a TV star.
On the occasion of her 107th birthday, we salute the queen of comedy.

Ball had to work as a B-list actress for a long time before landing a role in I Love Lucy.
According to TCM, Ball, who began her career as a model in New York City, earned the nickname “Queen of the Bs” in the 1940s because she couldn’t seem to land a film that would serve as her big break to stardom.
Ball, who possessed both tenacity and beauty, was determined to carve out a niche for herself in the entertainment industry.
Ball pitched an idea to work with her husband, Desi Arnaz, in which the couple would star in a brand-new TV series based on the popular radio show “My Favorite Husband,” which starred Ball.
I Love Lucy first aired in 1951.
The show would go on to change television forever, not only by establishing Ball as one of the world’s top comedians, but also by pioneering novel techniques like filming in front of a live studio audience.

Ball dominated the entertainment scene throughout the 1950s, establishing himself as a global celebrity.
Ball’s zany energy captured the hearts of fans all over the world.
Ball was, however, a powerful businesswoman behind the scenes, a far cry from her onscreen persona.
Desilu was founded by Ball and Desi Arnaz.
