Lucy And Desi Documentary Directed By Amy Poehler Coming To Prime Video

Lucy and Desi premieres on Prime Video on March 4th.

The upcoming Lucy and Desi documentary directed by Amy Poehler will debut at the Sundance Festival this month. It will debut on Prime Video on March 4th. This film will explore the rise of comedian icon Lucille Ball, her relationship with Desi Arnaz, and how I Love Lucy forever changed Hollywood.


One day in 1940, two budding stars met for the first time in the RKO Pictures commissary. They were unaware that together they would change the face of pop culture. After surviving a tumultuous upbringing, a teenage Lucille Ball left her family for New York City. She first found success as a model before moving to Hollywood to begin working in movies. Hailing from Santiago de Cuba, Desi Arnaz was a paid musician by 16. He quickly broke out as a multitalented entertainer. The two would go on to consistently challenge the status quo in entertainment both in front of and behind the camera.
