Marc Daniels worked predominately in television as a director, writer, and producer. He began a partnership with CBS in the late 1940s after serving in World War II, directing several episodes of its live television program "The Ford Theater." He will always be remembered, however, for getting the ball rolling and making TV history as the director the first 38 episodes of the classic Lucille Ball comedy show, "I Love Lucy." Daniels's work on the show would alone solidify his name as an important contributor to the medium. But he also devised with famed cinematographer Karl Freund the use of three cameras during the filming of "I Love Lucy," enabling the show to be shot in a continuous manner and in front of a live audience as if it was a live stage performance. The technique is still commonly used for the majority of television sitcoms, as opposed to a one-camera show which is how dramas are filmed. Daniels also directed episodes of the cult favorite "Star Trek," "Bonanza," "Hogan's Heroes," "Kung Fu," "Alice," and "Fame," to name just a few.
