CBS resurrects ‘I Love Lucy’ for colorized one-hour special

16 April 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In a move that may both thrill and horrify classic TV fans, CBS announced today it will air two more colorized episodes of I Love Lucy in a one-hour special in May. The network said the episodes will retain “a vintage look” and contain material not seen since the programs originally aired in the 1950s.

The episodes chosen for resurrection are 1955’s “L.A. at Last,” in which Lucy makes a bad impression on William Holden when the Ricardos and Mertzes visit the Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood, and 1957’s “Lucy and Superman,” which centers around Lucy trying to make good on her promise to bring Adventures of Superman star George Reeves to Little Ricky’s birthday party.

In 2013, CBS packaged two colorized I Love Lucy episodes in a Christmas special. Conceived as cheap holiday fare to fill a hole in its December schedule, The I Love Lucy Christmas Special ended up winning the night. »
