If you’re a fan of the Ricardos and the Mertzs, don’t miss the opportunity to speak with Gregg Oppenheimer. He’s the producer of the very high quality I Love Lucy DVD sets and finished the book Laughs, Luck…and Lucy: How I Came to Create the Most Popular Sitcom of All Time for his dad.
Gregg’s father is the late Jess Oppenheimer, head writer and producer of I Love Lucy. After leaving Lucy, the senior Oppenheimer went on to write and co-produce Get Smart and many other series. He also has the distinction of inventing the TelePropmTer, which was originally invented to help Lucille Ball read commercials.
Gregg will be the in-studio guest for Stu’s Show hosted by Stu Shostak on Shokus Internet Radio. He’ll discuss the painstaking restoration of every Lucy episode as well as his dad’s work on Lucy, battles with Desi Arnaz, and decision to leave after five seasons.
