Katie Silberman is an American screenwriter and film producer.

Silberman served as screenwriter for the 2018 romantic comedy Set It Up.[1] With Dana Fox and Erin Cardillo, she wrote Isn't It Romantic (2019), directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson.[2]

In spring 2018, Silberman was hired to revise the screenplay for Booksmart, and to update the story; previous drafts had been written by Emily Halpern, Sarah Haskins and Susanna Fogel.[3][4] The film was released in 2019. Silberman, who also served as producer for the film, explored new concepts:[5]

What if the two friends realized that they did high school all wrong? What if they realized that everyone they thought just partied and wasted their high-school years were going to Ivy League schools just like them?[3]

Following Booksmart, she began work on Most Dangerous Game to star Glen Powell and Zoey Deutch.[1]
