Investigation Discovery has released a trailer for Quiet On Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV, a new four-part docuseries that uncovers the toxic and dangerous culture on the sets of Dan Schneider‘s Nickelodeon children’s shows in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Per ID, “Quiet on Set reveals an insidious environment rife with allegations of abuse, sexism, racism, and inappropriate dynamics with its underage stars and crew.”
New allegations by Nickelodeon alums are revealed in the trailer, including from former All That cast members Giovonnie Samuels, Kyle Sullivan, Bryan Hearne and Katrina Johnson and director Virgil Fabian.
“Working for Dan was like being in an abusive relationship,” a former employee who is not named alleges in the trailer. “There was a toxic environment. It made me trust people less,” says another Nickelodeon alum.
In the docuseries, writers Jenny Kilgen and Christy Stratton expose allegations of a toxic and sexist environment in The Amanda Show writer’s room. Alexa Nikolas offers insight into being a part of Zoey 101. The docuseries also features additional cast and crew from iCarly, Sam & Cat, Victorious, and Marc Summers from the popular game show Double Dare. The series also includes emotional testimony from parents of cast members who attempted to advocate for their children on these sets.
The docuseries will feature these interviews, woven with archival footage (some of which has never been broadcast), scenes from the shows and social media commentary.
Nickelodeon parted ways with Schneider in 2018 after multiple complaints of abusive behavior from members of his staff.
Quiet on Set is directed by Mary Robertson and Emma Schwartz and produced by Maxine Productions and Sony Pictures Television – Nonfiction in association with Business Insider.
The docuseries will premiere across two nights on ID from 9PM-11PM ET/PT on Sunday, March 17 and Monday, March 18.
