Katrina O'Gilvie

Katrina O'Gilvie fell in love with the film industry at an early age, and followed that passion to film school at The New School University in NYC. Her time in film development at Imagine Entertainment and then as Aaron Sorkin's assistant on SPORTS NIGHT gave her even more experience working directly with writers, directors, showrunners, producers, and executives. While raising her children, Katrina worked in production, wrote a pregnancy book, and was a feature writer for LA Parent Magazine. During that time, she continued to write film and television scripts as well as her first novel. Before long, she was commissioned to three TV movies, including the award-winning and NAACP Image Award-nominated Rosa Parks movie, BEHIND THE MOVEMENT, chronicling the four days between when Mrs. Parks gave up her seat and the first day of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. She is incredibly proud to have been a writer/story editor on SWAGGER, a new show from Apple TV, Imagine Entertainment & CBS Studios, with her friend and mentor Reggie Rock Bythewood at the helm. Most recently, she sold a pilot, ACTIVATION, to CBS Network via the Rideback Writer's Program.
