For 50+ years Lucille Ball has been TV’s most recognizable & beloved face. But, we often overlook her role in shaping that turf: as producer of her own show & a cofounder of a major studio, she was a pioneer, rewriting the rules & forging new paths for women in the boardroom & on the soundstage. Traces the arc of Ball’s career from its unlikely beginnings in upstate N.Y. When she failed to make it on Broadway, she became a runway model, then an extra in a film. After falling in love with Cuban conga drummer Desi Arnaz, she worked with her husband on “I Love Lucy”. This  biography chronicles the difficult birth of the sitcom that changed the world; the turbulent marriage & painful split from Desi; her second marriage; & her sad last years out of the limelight.
