Moore Shares Memories of Lucy In PBS Special

The Public Broadcasting System (PBS) and Trinklein Productions has begun production on a four-part documentary series that will "tell great stories, reveal never-before-seen images and showcase timeless clips" about television's most legendary stars and the shows they made famous. The series called "Pioneers of Television" will debut in winter/spring 2008.

Mary Tyler Moore, one of the "pioneers," will share a behind-the-scenes story about Lucy:

Mary Tyler Moore talked about how Lucille Ball hid in the studio catwalk to watch rehearsals of the "Dick Van Dyke Show." One day Lucy laughed so hard she blew her cover -- and then came down to offer Mary life-changing advice."
