[via press release from FOX]

MARY TYLER MOORE RETURNS TO HER ORIGINAL SOUNDSTAGE WHEN SHE GUEST-STARS ON "THAT '70s SHOW" ON FOX

TV legend Mary Tyler Moore will take a trip back in time when she guest-stars in three upcoming episodes of THAT '70s SHOW. This marks her return to the original soundstage, Stage 2, on what was formerly named the MTM Studio lot, where "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" was filmed. Moore's episodes are scheduled to air in 2006 (exact dates TBA) and THAT '70s SHOW premieres Wednesday, Nov. 2 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Moore will portray Christine St. George, the beloved anchor of Point Place's daily news program, "What's Up Wisconsin?" Christine is one of Fez's (Wilmer Valderrama) regular customers at the hair salon where he works as a shampoo boy, and Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) is her number-one fan. But when Christine hires Jackie (Mila Kunis) to work as her personal assistant, the forecast is partly cloudy with a chance of mean. Jackie discovers the hard way that the behind-the-scenes Christine isn't like her charming on-air TV personality at all.

Seven-time Emmy Award winner Mary Tyler Moore holds a special place in people's hearts as a symbol of female independence and strength, both in her work and personal life. Her first taste of success came as Laura Petrie on "The Dick Van Dyke Show" from 1961-66. During the 1970s, she starred in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," which garnered 29 Emmys during its seven-year run, including four for its star.

Moore then transferred her talents to films, including "Ordinary People," for which she earned an Academy Award nomination. She also starred in "Six Weeks" opposite Dudley Moore, and in the highly acclaimed comedy "Flirting with Disaster" opposite Alan Alda and Ben Stiller.

She made her dramatic debut on Broadway in "Whose Life Is It Anyway?" for which she was honored with a Tony Award. In 1988, she played Mary Todd Lincoln in the miniseries "Gore Vidal's Lincoln," earning more critical praise and an Emmy nomination. Many television movies followed, including "Stolen Babies," for which she won a seventh Emmy Award, and "Like Mother, Like Son." Last year, she starred with Dick Van Dyke in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play "The Gin Game" and in an adaptation of the Anna Quindlen book "Blessings," in which she played the 82-year-old matriarch. Moore will next be seen in the network made-for-television movie "Snow Wonder."

Moore is the International Chairman of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, is active in numerous animal welfare organizations, and funds scholarship programs in the arts and academics.

THAT '70s SHOW is a Carsey-Werner production created by Bonnie Turner, Terry Turner and Mark Brazill. Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner, Dean Batali, Rob DesHotel and Mark Hudis are executive producers.
