Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV goes inside some of the toxic culture of children’s television shows that young actors and others endured in the 1990s and 2000s, including many series produced by Dan Schneider. It also features interviews with former actors, writers and crew members from hit Nickelodeon shows All That, The Amanda Show and Zoey 101 as they detail the alleged disturbing environment behind the scenes.

Schneider left the network in 2018 after an internal investigation into his allegedly verbally abusive and demanding behavior on set. Schneider has denied allegations of misconduct.

All four episodes of Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV, which premiered on March 17, are out now on ID and streaming on Max.

The docuseries explores the unusual tasks allegedly assigned to female writers on The Amanda Show by Dan Schneider, such as continuously massaging him in front of other writers and crew members.
