Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters will be featured on an upcoming episode of ABC Television's "Ugly Betty."
The actress, last seen on Broadway in the 2003 revival of Gypsy, will guest star on the Jan. 8, 2009, episode titled "Dress for Success." Nikki Blonsky, star of the movie musical "Hairspray," is also featured in the show, which airs at 8 PM (ET).

According to an ABC summary, "Betty juggles work and family without much success as she struggles to impress her idol, Jodie Papadakis (guest star Bernadette Peters), the editor running YETI. Things go from bad to worse when she encounters Teri (guest star Nikki Blonsky), an assistant at ELLE magazine, just as the long-running Mode/ELLE rivalry heats up."

"Ugly Betty" currently films in New York. For more information visit
