PEGGY LANE

CREATOR, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER   DIRECTOR, WRITER, ACTRESS

DIRECTOR

    Peggy earned her first producer credit on the film Reign. As a co-producer she realized how much of her previous experience lent itself to producing. Reign won many festivals and qualified for an Academy Award.

   She then joined Women In Film and worked on an award winning PSA called “I’m Mommy” about not texting while driving. It won a Telly Award.

   She also was the executive producer of a short film called  

Sticks and Stones which screened at Cannes.

   Other films followed. Perfect, Park Bench, Operation A&E, Dirty Beautiful, Aeternus Redux, 
Claire In The Evening, and Rock-A-Bye Road: Cinema Thrills and many more.
 

   Sticks and Stones is a film about bullying she produced for Women In Film. She is the executive producer of a film called Minutes about AIDS awareness starring Michael McDonald.

 

   She co-wrote and produced the comedy Grounds. Cold:Choices a film she produced stars Neil Brown Jr from Straight Outta Compton.  

   She is currently in Post 
Production on a film called Anne Frank Meets God which stars Aubrey Peeples from Nashville and Lorraine Toussaint as the voice of God.

   Peggy’s pilot Stop The Press has been called a modern day All In The Family. Her pilot Country Roads 
is being considered for a pilot pick-up.

   She wrote the story of her journey in finding her birth family called A Golden Christmas.  Her pilot script Screwed about her days in a band was optioned.

 

    Peggy is a member of The Television Academy: ATAS, Women In Film, SAG-AFTRA and AEA.

     Peggy began playing music professionally at the age of 13. She plays guitar, bass guitar, and keyboards and began writing songs at the age of 9. With fake I.D. in hand, she played many clubs in the Chicago and Wisconsin area for years. She started singing in a band called Fire and Rain which played the hotel circuit. 

     She was a lead singer of her own band Nightwatch, which became Peggy Lane and Nightwatch at the urging of an agent. She toured for 2 years playing in many clubs all over the country. Her band Promise was signed to a recording contract. That label soon went bankrupt and a move to Hollywood came soon after to pursue a record label deal. She and Steve Bruha co-wrote all of their songs. 
 

      Once in Hollywood, her band Promise was signed again, but this time to another label. Around this time, Peggy began pursuing acting again. She appeared in episodes of Hunter, recurred on the Fox show The Edge which featured Jennifer Aniston and Wayne Knight among others, recurred on Seinfeld as a coffee shop waitress and other characters, Will and Grace as a cab driver and a woman in a coffee shop, recurred on King of Queens playing Virginia Heffernan and a woman in a child rearing class as well as a Strawberry Ice Cream Cone. She most recently is the “voice of The Middle” with Patricia Heaton airing on ABC. She is the on set voice and has been heard as a woman in a crisis center, and a flight attendant in the episode 

Hecks On A Plane.

She also appeared on The Tonight singing with Jason Alexander.
