Playwright bio: Katherine Disavino

Katherine DiSavino is a film and TV writer living in Los Angeles. She is one of the top 75 best selling playwrights published by Samuel French. Her three published plays have been translated into multiple languages and performed around the world. Theatrical critics have called her work “True-to-life,” “Superbly written,” and “entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny.” Katherine grew up in the theatre – her parents own a professional Dinner Theatre outside of Philadelphia where she spent most of her formative years learning colorful words from actors and hiding underneath sets. This childhood also provided Katherine with a keen understanding of the theatrical market for audiences west of the Hudson River, which has certainly helped with the wide-spread popularity of her shows. Since moving to Los Angeles, Katherine has pitched on a number of film, TV and digital projects and has been hired to work with several screenwriters on feature scripts and TV pilots. Katherine is represented by Dan Halsted and Nate Miller at MANAGE-MENT and Amanda Hacohen and Adam Perry at APA.
