Lucie Arnaz Is An Executive Producer of the New Movie About Her Parents Titled “Being the Ricardos”

There’s an upcoming movie on Amazon Prime about Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz called Being the Ricardos. The exact content has been sketchy from the start, but the general theme seems to be about a crisis that happened during a week when they were filming the show. I’m wondering if maybe it was about when Lucy was accused of being a communist? I don’t know, though. That’s just speculation on my part. 

Ever since the film was announced fans of I love Lucy have been expressing their opinions, and most don’t sound too thrilled. For one thing, Nicole Kidman is playing Lucy and no one seems thrilled about that. In the same respect, no one has been more supportive of the film than Lucie Arnaz, the daughter of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. She’s gone on social media and she’s really singing the praises. The only problem is that very few people know Lucie Arnaz is an executive producer, and she should be admitting that while she’s promoting the film. Most people don’t realize it. So let’s keep it real.  In the spirit of full disclosure, and basic information from the Internet, there’s this: 

Despite being an executive producer (along with her brother, Desi Arnaz Jr.), Lucie revealed there were times she struggled with wanting to change some of the fictionalized storylines. “I mean, there are certain scenes that I wished hadn’t been in the feature film,” she told Palm Springs Life.

Here’s more. That last statement alone makes me wonder. But I’m keeping an open mind and I’ll look for reviews that aren’t promotions. I’ll probably watch it and see for myself as well. The problem for me is that people have tried to recreate the lives of Lucy and Desi and no one has ever been successful.
