Silvergate Media is a British-American television production and brand licensing company based in New York and London. The company was founded in 2011 by Waheed Alli, and was acquired by Sony Pictures Television in 2019.
Silvergate Media was created in 2011 as part of a management buy-out, when Alli purchased the rights to The Octonauts and The World of Beatrix Potter from Chorion, a company he was previously chair of.
In 2016, Netflix and Silvergate agreed to a three year multi-territory deal for Octonauts, Silvergate's show about underwater explorers.
The company signed a deal with Netflix, in collaboration with Mercury Filmworks to produce Hilda, an animated television adaptation of comic Hilda by Luke Pearson. Season 1 was released on September 21, 2018. Season 2 was released on December 14, 2020. The series is available in 130 countries.
Silvergate also produced Sunny Day for Nickelodeon, which started airing on August 21, 2017.
In 2016, the investment fund Shamrock Capital Advisors acquired a 51% equity of the company, with the valuation reported to be "between £70 and £80 million".
On December 10, 2019, Sony Pictures Television announced that it would acquire Silvergate Media for US$195 million. The deal marks SPT's first in-house studio devoted primarily to children's animation since Sony Pictures Animation's diversification into television.
