'I Love Lucy' Christmas special to air on CBS

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- CBS says it plans to air the "I Love Lucy Christmas Special," featuring two newly colorized classic episodes of the U.S. sitcom.

The hour-long program is to be broadcast Dec. 20. It will include the "I Love Lucy" "Christmas Episode" and "Lucy's Italian Movie."

The episodes "were colorized with a vintage look, a nod to the 1950s period in which the shows were filmed," CBS said in a news release Tuesday. "The main titles and end credits of the two episodes are seamlessly combined into one set -- at the beginning and end of the hour -- with no interruption between the episodes."

Starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley, the show ran from 1951-57, but has been seen for decades in re-runs.
