Desilu/Lucille Ball/Jack Palance
29 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Desilu produced The Greatest Show on Earth shown on ABC and starring Jack Palance. This show was produced in color, ( most shows of that era were still done in black and white), In order to jump the ratings, Lucille Ball even guest starred in the series in a rare dramatic performance. However the show was not renewed for a 2nd year much to Ms. Ball's dismay. Lucille Ball even promised the sponsor of the show, Kaiser, that she would take her own successful Lucy Show off the air on CBS so she could devote all of her time to The Greatest Show On Earth. Lucille Ball, CEO of Desilu, was quoted as saying "Jack Palance will never work here again and you may quote me"
