Silvergate unveils biggest content slate to date

Major commissions with Nickelodeon and Netflix gives the production and licensing firm its biggest ever year

Silvergate Media is underway on its biggest content slate ever for 2018, buoyed by high-profile commissions with Nickelodeon and Netflix, alongside new content for its global hit series Octonauts.

The international TV production and brand licensing company is rapidly expanding kids’ animation production slate with its most extensive and diverse line-up since being established in 2011.

“Silvergate Media is now a significant creative force in pre-school TV and is building its production slate in the broader children’s market” said Waheed Alli, CEO at Silvergate Media. “We have had smash hits in the USA, China, Europe and Australia with more on its way.”

In its third standalone commission from Silvergate Media, Nickelodeon has ordered new pre-school animated series Fashion Ally (working title). Created by Silvergate Media’s EVP of Creative Content, Paula Rosenthal (Sunny Day and Peter Rabbit), the show is set in the heart of New York and follows Ally, a little girl with big ideas and a passion for fashion. Ally makes everything around her a bit brighter, bolder and more brilliant, turning every problem into a positive with the perfect fashion solution.  40 x 23’ episodes are planned to premiere on Nickelodeon.

As previously announced, Chico Bon Bon: Monkey with a Tool Belt is a fast paced, action-packed construction comedy for pre-school boys. Set in Blunderburg, the show follows the adventures of Chico and Team Bon Bon, the fix-it force that dedicates it’s time to rescuing the mechanically challenged metropolis from its many mishaps. Chico is the owner of an awesome tool belt and when he rolls up his sleeves to solve a problem, Chico’s mind goes into nonstop discovery mode, spouting out endless ways to create, repair, and explore. Fixing things has never been so much fun! The series, executive produced by Silvergate Media’s EVP of Creative Content Kurt Mueller (Octonauts and Hilda), is currently in production (44 x 11’) for a 2020 debut on Netflix. Silvergate Media is now commencing discussions for terrestrial sales of the show.

Silvergate Media also continues to ramp up its own content offering announcing that a sixth series of its hit global pre-school show, Octonauts, is now in production. The new 52 x 11’ episodes will roll-out globally from 2020 and this new instalment will be a significant step change for the established franchise – introducing new environments, new characters and a new fleet of vehicles. 

In a further boost to its content pipeline, Silvergate Media is producing two new 60 minute kids’ films for theatrical release in China. 

Alongside these new developments, Silvergate Media continues in production with content for its existing commissions. These include Hilda, an animated adventure series for kids aged 6-11 years that is gearing up to debut on Netflix this Autumn, and Sunny Day, a pre-school girls animation that premiered on Nick Jr.  in August 2017, where Season 2 is now in production.
