Katey Sagal stars as housework-hating homemaker Peggy Bundy in Columbia Pictures Television's top-rated prime time half-hour comedy series "Married...With Children" for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

For her portrayal of Peg, Ms. Sagal was nominated as best lead actress in a comedy series for both a Golden Globe (1990) and an American Comedy Award (1990 and 1992). Viewers also know her for her critically acclaimed portrayal of Mary Tyler Moore's hard-bitten co-worker in the series "Mary." During her Summer hiatus, she filmed the NBC television film "Trail of Tears." Ms. Sagal also starred in the television film for NBC "She Says She's Innocent."

In feature films, Ms. Sagal has appeared in Vista Films' "Maid to Order," and with Diane Keaton in the Touchstone feature "The Good Mother."

Ms. Sagal was born into a show business family and grew up in Los Angeles and New York. Her father was the noted director Boris Sagal. Her younger twin sisters, Liz and Jean Sagal, starred in the television series "Double Trouble."

A versatile performer, Ms. Sagal is a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter who began singing at the age of five. She has worked as a back-up singer for Bob Dylan, Etta James and Olivia Newton-John. She also performed with Bette Midler as one of the flamboyant "Harlettes," a group she describes as "nasty, flashy and trashy."

Ms. Sagal released her first CD, "Well" on Virgin Records this spring. The powerfully constructed album, which she co-wrote, derives inspiration from her own passionate experiences. She continues to perform in nightclubs throughout the Los Angeles area.

Ms. Sagal and her husband, Jack White, reside in Los Angeles with their baby girl, Sarah Grace.
