10 Fun Facts About A Classic TV Series

Recommended Posts

10. Producer Jess Oppenheimer sued Lucille Ball midway through The Lucy Show, claiming that she was still using the character and concept he had developed for her on My Favorite Husband and I Love Lucy. Oppenheimer won the court case, and Ball had to pay him a creator's fee, even though he remained uncredited on The Lucy Show. When she prepared to launch her next series Here's Lucy she had her attorneys pay Oppenheimer again, so that he wouldn't sue her a second time.
