New York and London – 6 April 2016
Silvergate Media (“Silvergate”), the international TV production and licensing company focused on pre-school children’s entertainment based in New York and London, has agreed a new three year, multi-territory deal with Netflix for seasons one, two and three of Octonauts, its undersea preschool adventure property.
