Hailing from Milwaukee, WI, actress Amy Pietz earned several one-off appearances on series such as Star Trek: The Next Generation and Conrad Bloom while also appearing in big-screen fare like Rudy and Jingle All the Way. She earned a steady paycheck during many of those years playing the part of Annie Viola Spadaro on Caroline in the City. She continued with guest roles on ER, The Drew Carey Show, and Law & Order: SVU, while making time for appearances in the films The Whole Ten Yards and DysEnchanted. After a two-year run on Rodney ended in 2006, she was cast as overprotective Wisconsin mom Franny Tolchuck the next year on the CW culture-clash sitcom Aliens in America. Though that series ended quickly, she went on to appear in Reunion, and the teen film Prom. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
