Nickelodeon alumni speak out.
Investigation Discovery (ID) released the trailer for its docuseries Quiet on set: The dark side of children's television February 8, which True Crime Networks says “uncovers the toxic and dangerous culture behind some of the most iconic children's shows of the late 1990s and early 2000s.”
During these decades, Dan Schneider has worked on many popular Nickelodeon shows, with him writing for All that and create programs like Amanda's Show, Zoe 101, iCarly And Victorious. And while the journalist Kate Taylor described him in the trailer as once being “Nickelodeon's Golden Boy,” the allegations cast his time working with the brand in a different light.
“For 20 years he shaped children's entertainment and culture,” the journalist said Scaachi Koul explained in the clip. “But it marked one of the darkest chapters.”
Calm on setpremiering in March, explores “an insidious environment with allegations of abuse, sexism, racism and inappropriate dynamics with underage stars and crew,” according to its press release.
