THE LAUGH TRACK

Inspired by the story of Lucille Ball’s head writer, a young woman tries to be taken seriously in the early days of television comedy. Sparks fly between Maddie and Bob, the writing partner who lets her do the typing while taking credit for her jokes. As the two get closer, Lucy and Desi come apart; the show’s singular success takes its toll on them all.

POSTERITY

In stories that cut across centuries, three families struggle with the loss of children, fiancés, brothers, and sons—looking to photography for solace. Do the photographs supplant treasured memories? Are images from 9/11 or Civil War battlefields documenting history or violating the dead?
