Ben Silverman’s Net Worth Came From Companies He Founded
The “Reveille” is a television, film, and theater production company. The main focus of this company was the discovery and exploitation of international content and selling that same content in the United States. That is how some of the most popular shows on television were created.
In 2008, Ben Silverman sold his production company “Reveille” to a British firm for $125 million. After that successful sale, he became a co-chairman of NBC Entertainment where he stayed until July 2009, when he announced that he was founding another company, Electus which produced and distributed content on all platforms (TV, Web, Mobile). He left that company in 2016 and handed it over to his partners Chris Grand and Drew Buckley. Some said that he did that to start working together with Will.I.am on a TV Show about app developers for “Apple”. Meanwhile, in 2015, he founded a production company called “Propagate” with Howard T. Owens.
What is Propagate?
“Propagate” is located in Los Angeles and their portfolio includes the above mentioned Apple’s first original series “Planet of the Apps” featuring Gwyneth Paltrow, Will.i.am, Jessica Alba, and Gary Vaynerchuk, and Twitter’s first series, “#WhatsHappening”.
Silverman is currently producing a feature film “Clemente”, which is actually the Roberto Clemente biopic and a number of other projects. Some of them are: “Red Team” for Amazon (based on the best-selling book), “Isn’t That Rich” which is again based on Richard Kirshenbaum’s best-selling book and adapted by Amy Harris, “Persiguiendo El Sol”, and various other TV Shows and pilots on almost all platforms. Apart from that, Silverman continues what he does best – creating globally successful shows from international formats. In the end, that is where Ben Silverman net worth came from.
