Lucille Ball never ranked among the top movie stars of the Thirties and Forties, but she was a popular star and played the lead in many movies nonetheless. She guest starred on various radio shows and she was the star of the popular radio sitcom My Favorite Husband. It would be television that would propel her to superstardom, and I Love Lucy remains one of the most popular television shows of s all time. The first episode of the third season of Turner Classic Movies' award winning podcast The Plot Thickens debuted today. This season the podcast looks at the life and career of Lucille Ball.

The third season of The Plot Thickens will feature newly discovered audio from Lucille Ball. It will also include more than 40 new interviews. This season will span Lucille Ball's life from her childhood to her modelling career to her success on television and as the first female head of a Hollywood studio (Desilu). In the course of the podcast, Ben Mankiewicz talks to many who knew Lucille Ball.

The Plot Thickens is available on the TCM website, Spotify, YouTube, IHeart Radio, and other places where podcasts are available.
