InterMedia Entertainment Company was the production company of Fred Silverman that was formed in 1981. The name was later changed to The Fred Silverman Company in 1987.

Logo (September 18, 1982-May 12, 1987)

Visuals: On a black background is the big rainbow-colored word "InterMedia" with an underline stretching across and "InterMedia Entertainment Company" in a smaller typeface written below it. It is arranged like this:

InterMedia Entertainment Company

The second "i" in "InterMedia" is dotted with a golden star.


  • Depending on the quality, the rainbow colors of the logo can vary.
  • One variant has the word "InterMedia" in smaller but more colorful letters, has no underline under it, and the smaller words (without "InterMedia") are also capitalized.
  • On the NBC run of We Got It Made, the above variant appears, but a second later, the word "and" appears below.
  • Another is similar to the above variant, but the size and colors of the word "InterMedia" remain unchanged and the smaller words aren't capitalized.
  • On the cartoon series Meatballs and Spaghetti and Pandamonium, the rainbow colors of the logo slowly flow to the right. Shortly after, the star that dots the "i" shines briefly.

Technique: A still graphic for the normal variant. 2D animation for the animated variant.

Audio: The end theme of the show.

Availability: Many of Silverman's shows during this era were not big hits.

  • Survives on the first season of Matlock (episodes from "The Convict" onward use the first Fred Silverman Company logo) on DVD and on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Pluto TV, Me-TV, FETV and Decades and the first three Perry Mason TV films on DVD, Me-TV and Decades.
  • It also appears on other shows such as We Got It Made, Meatballs and Spaghetti, and Pandamonium.
