Amazon Prime Video has announced that a Spanish-language remake of the famous American sitcom I Love Lucy would be released.

All For Lucy will star Natalia Tllez as the title heroine and Daniel Tovar as her husband Ricky, according to the streaming site.

In a statement, Francisco Morales, Amazon Prime Video’s head of programming for Mexico, stated, “We are pleased to continue exposing the explosive creativity of our talent in Mexico and bringing it to our Amazon Prime Video viewers.”

“We can’t wait for this title to join our growing library of unique and original series and films from around the world, demonstrating the great quality of Latin American productions,” says the company.

The original show starred Lucille Ball and her husband, Desi Arnaz, and aired for six seasons from 1951 to 1957. In reruns, it’s still a hit.

In 1940, Ball and Arnaz married and separated in 1960. Ball died at the age of 77 in 1989. At the age of 69, Arnaz died in 1986.
