Full trailer – The Hollywood Reporter

Though best known for provoking laughter, Lucille Ball juggles a lot of drama in the first full trailer for Amazon Studios’ The Ricardos are.

The spot explores both the marital troubles of the titular couple – played by Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem – and alludes to Ball’s investigation by the FBI. (In testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee, Ball admitted that he had previously registered as a member of the Communist Party in 1936 at the urging of her then-ill grandfather.)

Aaron Sorkin is behind the feature that offers an inside look at the famous couple’s complicated professional and romantic relationship, set against the backdrop of a critical week of production on their groundbreaking sitcom I love Lucy.

“If they boo you, we’re done,” Bardem says as Desi Arnaz in the trailer, which also stars JK Simmons as William Frawley and Nina Arianda as Vivian Vance.

The Ricardos are will receive an award-winning release, which will hit theaters on December 10 before Prime Video releases on December 21.
