Quiet On Set: The Dark Side Of Kids TV,” a 4-part documentary series revealing the hidden toxicity of 90s and 2000s kids’ TV, has left viewers stunned.

Within minutes of watching the docuseries, I was shocked by the disturbing revelations of sexism, racism, lewd behavior, sexual misconduct, assault, and pedophilia on the sets of popular (and my fave) Nickelodeon shows.

About ‘Quiet On Set’

Quiet On Set” features interviews with former actors, writers, and crew members from “All That,” “The Amanda Show,” and “Zoey 101,” who detailed their experiences in the extremely toxic work environment.

Dan Schneider, the producer behind many of the shows discussed in the docuseries, is the scumbag with a laundry list of misconduct allegations, seemingly responsible for fostering the toxicity.

Schneider departed from the network in 2018 following an internal investigation into allegations of his verbally abusive and demanding behavior on set. 

He has denied any misconduct allegations.

One of the most shocking revelations from “Quiet On Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV” was Drake Bell, former star of “Drake & Josh,” speaking out for the first time and revealing himself to be the John Doe who was repeatedly sexually assaulted by Nickelodeon dialogue coach Brian Peck.

I was sleeping on the couch where I usually sleep and I woke up to him… I opened my eyes and I woke up and he was…he was sexually assaulting me,” Drake says in the docuseries. “And I froze, and was in complete shock and had no idea what to do or how to react.”

Drake Bell, who was afraid to speak out, explained, “And it just got worse, and worse, and worse, and worse, and I was just trapped. I had no way out. The abuse was extensive and it got pretty brutal.”

In 2004, Peck, who was a pen pal to serial killer John Wayne Gacy, pleaded no contest to charges in Drake’s case and spent a measly 16 months in prison. 

He was required to register as a sex offender, but that didn’t stop him from landing a job on Disney’s “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” in 2006.
