Tracey Ullman has been doing TV sketches for decades about women who fall in love with death row inmates. Here’s one from the 1990s in which ACLU lawyeress Sydney Kross talks shy bankteller Kay Clark (both Ullman) into marrying her Death Row penpal:
Ullman’s greatest version of this theme was from a half dozen years ago: White Widow Gretchen Pincus, who has married a half dozen African-American inmates of the Huntsville Death Row, such as the Wet Wipe Killer and the Tastee-Freez Rapist. But it evidently made almost no splash in popular culture and I can’t find the video online anymore.
Ullman has always seemed extremely funny to me and to television executives, but not, so far as I can tell, to anybody else.
