The pilot for the series I Love Lucy was recorded in 1951 as a kinescope (a recording of a television program made by filming the picture from a video monitor). Lucy was pregnant with her first child at the time. But the executives at CBS liked it enough that they green lighted the series, despite some misgivings about an “all American girl” married to a Cuban. it wasn’t made for broadcast and the episode never aired.
