What TV comedian was instrumental in putting the original “Star Trek” on the air?


  • Lucille Ball:While best known as the star of I Love Lucy, Lucile Ball was also instrumental in getting Star Trek off the ground. If it were not for Lucy, there would be no Star Trek today,” former studio executive Ed Holly told Desilu historian Coyne Sanders. CBS wasn’t interested in Star Trek, but Ball, who was talented at spotting a new show, overruled the decision and had the pilot produced anyway. The initial pilot bombed, so a second pilot was made and funded by Ball, as she once again ignored her board. The second pilot starred William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, and the rest as they say is history! Thanks, Lucy.
