Quiet on the set

“Quiet on the Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV” is a four-part Nickelodeon documentary series that has been all over the news. It looks at reports of abuse and bad behavior behind the scenes on shows like “iCarly,” “Drake & Josh,” and “The Amanda Show.” It gives us new information about some of the most popular kids’ shows in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Schneider has been in trouble for the way he acts and the way things are on his show sets. It’s the first time that Drake Bell of “Drake & Josh” has told the world that a Nickelodeon conversation coach abused him. Discovery and Max both have four episodes that you can watch. Different people have said that Dan Schneider acted badly at Nickelodeon. He has answered these charges.

“Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV,” a new docuseries on ID, looks more closely at some of Schneider’s shows, such as “Sam & Cat,” “All That,” and “iCarly”. It says that in scenes cut into collection videos, some of these shows seem to sexualize young child stars like Ariana Grande and Jamie Lynn Spears.

What Dan Schneider Says About “Quiet on the Set”

For his part, Schneider says he never meant to do that. “Dozens of adults who were involved with the shows Dan ran carefully watched everything that happened and gave their approval to the network.” “If there was a real problem with the scenes that some people are now “sexualizing” years later, they would be taken down, but they aren’t; they are still shown all over the world all the time, and kids and parents enjoy them,” a Schneider spokesperson told Variety.

“Remember that both sides’ networks gave their full blessing to all of the plots, dialogue, outfits, and make-up. The people in charge of standards and practices read and approved all the scripts, and the people in charge of writing the shows also read and approved all the episodes. Parents, teachers, and friends of the actors were also on every set every day to watch the shooting and practice. The statement said that this high-level, close look would have found and stopped any scenes or clothes that were wrong in any way. “Unfortunately, some adults watch kids’ shows with their adult minds and make wrong assumptions about them.”

People who worked with Schneider on Nickelodeon in the 1990s and early 2000s are in the docuseries. It streams on Max and airs on ID on Sunday and Monday at 9 p.m. ET. People on Schneider’s team say he was racist, sexist, and bad at his job. They also say he asked them to rub him all the time on set. “Dan feels terrible that he asked anyone to massage his neck,” his team said. “Even though they took place in public, he knows this was totally wrong and will never happen again.”

Different news sources said that director Emma Schwartz said they asked Nickelodeon to be in the documentary but they said no. “We asked them a bunch of questions.” That’s what they told us again. “We talked to a lot of people who had worked at or been familiar with Nickelodeon and tried to find out as much as we could,” she shared.

A network representative said, “Although we cannot confirm or deny claims of behaviors from decades ago, Nickelodeon will always look into all formal complaints as part of our commitment to creating a safe and professional workplace free of harassment and other forms of inappropriate conduct.” “We care most about the safety and well-being of all children, including our workers, cast, and crew. We’ve put in place many safety measures over the years to help us live up to our own high standards and the goals of our audience.

History of Jennette McCurdy As A Child Actress Through Her Memoir

If you remember Jennette McCurdy from Nickelodeon, she had a great time being a child star. People thought that. The “iCarly” actress, who played Sam Puckett to a whole generation of kids, seemed to stay out of most public troubles, which is what most young stars do. Her exit from the business was quiet in 2017, and she wasn’t on the new season of “iCarly” on Paramount+. Now, though, McCurdy (30 years old) is sharing the scary truth about what really took place behind the scenes.

Her first book, “I’m Glad My Mom Died” (Simon & Schuster, 320 pp., out now), is a deeply funny look at the bad things that happened to her when she became famous in a job she never wanted. For her “narcissistic” mother Debbie, who allegedly put her in dangerous positions before her 2013 death from breast cancer, she did everything. McCurdy says her mother didn’t love and care for her. Instead, she says, she made her have eating disorders and hid cancerous lumps in her breasts and groin area until she was sixteen.

There is intentional roughness in the title of her first book, which some people think is wrong. One thing is that society says we should always love our family.”I love a bold title, and I never would have titled it that if I didn’t feel like I earned (it) in the writing of the book,” McCurdy said. “I definitely would not have been able to confront or face my experience of eating disorders had my mother not passed away… because my eating disorders were so endorsed and supported and encouraged by her.”

This isn’t McCurdy’s first book. She felt guilty and sad after her mother died too soon. After having a number of eating disorders and living with trauma from a long time ago, things are getting better. She finally doesn’t want to act, which is what she wants for the first time. Putting together words.

Jennette McCurdy’s mother told her to eat less when she was only eleven years old. She had no idea what an eating problem was until she heard about it. As a child actor, the young star did very well, which made her mother very happy. Some of her most famous roles were on “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” and “Malcolm in the Middle.” But to help her move up in her job, her mother gave her a crazy way to look young even after puberty.

What Nickelodeon Did to People

Stars like Jojo Siwa have spoken out against Nickelodeon, but McCurdy has mostly kept quiet about how unfair it was to treat her as a child star. So far. It’s not named, but McCurdy talks about how bad management makes the workplace unsafe and harmful. There were reports of sexual harassment at the “child-friendly” company, and “The Creator’s” departure shocked the TV world when he was charged with “emotional abuse.” It was Dan Schneider who directed and ran the show; McGurdy wouldn’t say who “The Creator” was. USA TODAY asked Nickelodeon and Schneider’s lawyer for comments.
