Amazon Prime Video will launch “All For Lucy”, which is described as a modern, reimagined version of the classic 1950s comedy series “I Love Lucy.” The logline: In this new series, Lucy is a 21st-century woman who wants to be in love, but doesn’t want to give up her individuality. Mexican actress Natalia Téllez (Después de Ti) is set to star in the iconic role of Lucy, while Daniel Tovar (Mirreyes Vs. Godínez) will play her husband Ricky. And in another modern update on love, Andrés (Andy) Zuno (Al Diablo con los Guapos) and Daniel Haddad (La Búsqueda) play the couple Esteban and Federico, who are Lucy and Ricky’s next-door neighbors.
“All For Lucy” is being developed and produced by Endemol Shine Boomdog, a division of Endemol Shine North America, teaming with Elefantec Global that together acquired the rights to create an adaptation of the series. The series will launch exclusively on Prime Video in Latin America and the United States. The format rights are licensed by ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.
“‘I Love Lucy’ is the basis of every comedy show ever done – and we are honored to reimagine it with its core characters and stories,” said Endemol Shine Boomdog’s Leo Zimbrón. “We took this classic sitcom and transformed it into a romantic comedy for 2021. It was a hard and beautiful task, working with fantastic talent in front and behind the cameras. Our cast made the characters their very own, so we have a very current Lucy and Ricardo relationship, and the storylines are by all means ‘today’s life.’ Together with our partners at Elefantec, we are very proud to bring these fun adventures to the audiences of today, and what a great way to do it, making it happen through Amazon Prime Video.”
Endemol Shine Boomdog’s Leonardo Zimbrón (Subete a Mi Moto) serves as the show’s executive producer, while Joe Rendon is the showrunner/director.
