Everybody Still Loves Lucy!
on September 5, 2017
Jess Oppenheimer was one of television's most important producers and a prominent comedy writer known mostly for "I Love Lucy." I bought this book for aspiring sitcom writer. He didn't start writing comedy for television. He began making jokes as a child to cope with a difficult childhood in San Francisco, California.
He studied at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California where he emerged in radio career. Then he came to Los Angeles, California for a radio and television career. He never imagined the success of "I Love Lucy." He was producer and head writer for the first five seasons. The series with the entire cast, Lucille Ball; Desi Arnaz; William Frawley and Vivian Vance were inducted into the Television Hall of Fame. The entire cast have Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well too.
In my personal opinion, Jess Oppenheimer should a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Television and Radio. He should be posthumously be inducted into the Television Hall of Fame as well. Jess was the unsung hero of the series.
