Born Catherine Louise Sagal, her father was the late Boris Sagal, the noted television and film director; her mother, Sara Zwilling, was a director and singer. Katey began performing at age 5 and studied voice and acting at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California. A singing waitress during her \\"salad\\" years, she first started performing with the band \\"The Group with No Name\\", and then caught a break after hooking up with Gene Simmons and his 1970s rock band KISS. In the meantime, she gained valuable experience as a backup recording singer for Simmons and such other established stars as Bob Dylan, Olivia Newton-John, Etta James and Tanya Tucker. Katey also was dynamic performing live backup with diva Bette Midler as one of her \\"Harlettes\\" in Bette's wildly avant garde stage shows during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
In 1985, while performing on stage in a musical, she was spotted by talent agents who subsequently cast her as Mary Tyler Moore's feisty co-worker Jo Tucker in Mary (1985), a short-lived comedy series. From that point on she focused on film and television. In 1987, she won the role of Peg Bundy in Married with Children (1986), and the rest is history.
In her post-Bundy career, Katey has continued to demonstrate a strong range, playing a much more responsible parent in the popular sitcom 8 Simple Rules (2002). Co-starring the late John Ritter, Katey valiantly moved to single head of household after Ritter's sudden passing in 2003 with highly successful results. Katey has earned equally fine kudos for her television movies, appearing in such fare as Chance of a Lifetime (1998), a charming romantic comedy that also co-starred John Ritter, God's New Plan (1999), a tearjerker in which she played a dying mother, and the Disney offerings Smart House (1999) and The Wonderful World of Disney: Mr. Headmistress (1998). The voice of Turanga Leela, the beautiful one-eyed sewer mutant, in the animated series Futurama (1999), she also has guested on such series as Ghost Whisperer (2005), Lost (2004), Boston Legal (2004), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000) and Eli Stone (2008). Feature films have included Maid to Order (1987), The Good Mother (1988), the Sundance Film Festival favorite Dropping Out (2000), Following Tildy (2002) and the indie I'm Reed Fish (2006). More recently, she played Jack's mother in a live action/adventure retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk (2009) that also featured the talents of Christopher Lloyd, James Earl Jones and Chevy Chase.
Katey resides in the Los Angeles area with husband, writer/producer/director/creator Kurt Sutter, whose acclaimed work includes The Shield (2002) and the offbeat Sons of Anarchy (2008), the latter show created by Sutter with Katey intriguingly cast as a motorcycle club family matriarch. They share their home with three children, Sarah, Jackson and Esmé, and three dogs, Lumpy, Lola and Blue.
