Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV, a four-part documentary series exposing “toxic and dangerous culture” and alleged abuse on the sets of some of Nickelodeon’s hit series, is going viral all on TikTok. The ID channel will re-air the entire docuseries starting on Friday (March 22), but if you don’t feel like waiting, the docuseries is also streaming on Max.

According to a press release from ID, the documentary series offers “unprecedented access to key cast members, writers, and crew spanning Schneider’s popular series at Nickelodeon,” including All That cast members Giovonnie Samuels, Kyle Sullivan, Bryan Hearne, Katrina Johnson and director Virgil Fabian, The Amanda Show writers Jenny Kilgen and Christy Stratton, Alexa Nikolas from Zoey 101 in addition to cast and crew from iCarlySam & CatVictorious and other Nickelodeon icons such as Marc Summers former host of Double Dare.

The docuseries, which premiered on the Investigation Discovery channel on March 17 and March 18, explores several shows created by Dan Schneider, who has since denied several claims made against him in the documentary, including sexualizing children and cultivating a toxic work environment.

“Everything that happened on the shows Dan ran was carefully scrutinized by dozens of involved adults, and approved by the network,” a rep for Schneider said in a statement to Variety. “If there was an actual problem with the scenes that some people, now years later are ‘sexualizing,’ they would be taken down, but they are not, they are aired constantly all over the world today still, enjoyed by both kids and parents,”

Drake Bell, of the Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh, appears in the documentary’s third episode. In the documentary, Bell accused former Nickelodeon acting and dialogue coach Brian Peck of sexual abuse.

In August 2003, Peck was arrested on sexual abuse charges including performing a lewd act on a child. The victim was one of the children that Peck was coaching and was molested at his home for more than six months, according to the LAPD. Peck served 16 months for child molestation and is now a registered sex offender.

Clips from the documentary, including Bell’s story, have received millions of views on TikTok.

“My name is Drake bell, and I came here to tell my story. I have never told my story publicly,” Bell shares in the documentary.

Quiet on Set is directed by Mary Robertson and Emma Schwartz. The series is produced by Maxine Productions and Sony Pictures Television.
