Petite brunette Amy Pietz gained her first experience on the Chicago stage in productions at companies such as Steppenwolf, Organic and Eclipse (of which she was one of the founding members). Within five months of her move to Los Angeles, Pietz had appeared in an episode of the police drama "Missing Persons" (ABC, 1993), the feature "Rudy" (1993) and later joined the cast of the fledgling Warner Bros. Network's sitcom "Muscle" (1995) as a lesbian newscaster. Her breakthrough came with her next series gig as Lea Thompson's knowing, sexually predatory neighbor and friend, Annie, on "Caroline in the City" (NBC, 1995-2000). After co-starring in the short-lived "The Weber Show" (NBC 2000-01) and appearing in action comedy sequel "The Whole Ten Yards" (2004), Pietz co-starred in the sitcoms "Rodney" (ABC 2004-08) and "Aliens in America" (CW 2007-08) and had a brief story arc on "The Office" (NBC 2005-2013). A supporting role in action drama "The Nine Lives of Chloe King" (ABC Family 2011) was followed by another co-starring role in romantic drama "No Tomorrow" (CW 2016-).
