Nickelodeon to Premiere 'Made by Maddie', a New Fashion-First Animated Preschool Series from Silvergate Media, in Fall 2020

International TV production and brand licensing company Silvergate Media has announced the exciting news that Nickelodeon will premiere Made by Maddie, the network's brand-new animated preschool series, in Fall 2020!


Commissioned by Nickelodeon and produced by Silvergate, Made by Maddie (40 x 11 min episodes and 4 x 22 min specials) is a fashion-first series, set in the heart of NYC, and features the titular character as a breath-of-fresh air heroine who inspires imaginative thinking, resourcefulness and positivity.

The series was originally announced at Nickelodeon Upfront 2018 under the working title of Fashion Ally. The series is created by Silvergate Media’s Executive Vice President (EVP) of Creative Content, Paula Rosenthal (Nickelodeon's Sunny Day and Peter Rabbit).

Below is Nickelodeon's original description for the show:

"Fashion Ally (working title, 40 episodes) – This animated series follows a little girl, Ally, in the high fashion world as she makes everything around her a bit brighter, bolder and more brilliant, one design fix at a time. Fashion Ally is created by Paula Rosenthal and produced by Slivergate Media (Sunny Day, Peter Rabbit)."

Among the actors lending their voices to the characters in Made by Maddie will be actor Nico Tortorella (Younger, Sunny Day). Jamie Lynn Spears, the younger sister of global superstar Britney Spears who starred in hit Nickelodeon series All That and Zoey 101 is also thought to be lending her voice to a character in the series.

Michael G. Stern is serving as Head Writer on the series, with Hell’s Kitchen-based theatre and television writer Laura Kleinbaum (Bubble Guppies, Butterbean’s Cafe, Rusty Rivets, Zoofari) also working on the series.

Silvergate Media will be presenting its portfolio of hit properties, including Hilda and Octonauts, as well as upcoming series SuperKitties, Super Duper Molly Cooper and Innards at MIP Jnr 2019.

“Strong storytelling, high quality animation and original content are at the heart of everything we do here at Silvergate Media,” explains Waheed Alli, CEO at Silvergate Media. “It’s an extremely exciting time for the company. Be it a full commission, co-production or simply a content licence, Silvergate is open for business. We are looking forward to meeting with existing and new partners at MIPCOM.”
