I Love Lucy is perhaps best remembered as a classic sitcom that also managed to set the precedent for the three camera set-up that would follow for decades in the medium. But a new biopic is taking a closer look at the story behind all of that, and now we have the first trailer.
Being the Ricardos follows the drama behind the scenes of the show’s stars and creators Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz (played here by Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem). The logline for the film also mentions a crisis that threatens both their careers as well as their marriage. The pair would later wind up divorcing in 1960, three years after the show went off the air.
Being the Ricardos, which was written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, is in theaters December 10th and on Amazon Prime December 21st.
