Former Nickelodeon producer Dan Schneider denies sexualizing young child stars on set

Former Nickelodeon producer Dan Schneider has denied creating a toxic workplace while at the children’s channel and sexualizing young child stars on set.

 

Schneider who is behind hit Nickelodeon shows like “The Amanda Show” and “Drake & Josh” has said there’s no truth to the allegations floated in ‘Quiet on Set’. He stated that numerous adults were involved in overseeing all aspects of the shows, with everything being approved by the network itself.

 

The producer also said that scripts for the shows underwent a rigorous vetting process, requiring approvals from both NYC and L.A. networks and if anything was found to be inappropriate, it would’ve been flagged and blocked by multilayered scrutiny.

 

The statement added;

 

“Remember, all stories, dialogue, costumes, and makeup were fully approved by network executives on two coasts. A standards and practices group read and ultimately approved every script, and programming executives reviewed and approved all episodes.”

 

He also disclosed that as well as ensuring the scripts were kid-appropriate, parents, caregivers, and their friends would be on set every day watching filming and rehearsals.

Schneider’s statement comes after the first 2 installments of ID’s doc, “Quiet on the Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV”. It was alleged that some of his shows appeared to sexualize child stars like Ariana Grande and Jamie Lynn Spears in specific scenes.

 

It also delves deeper into claims of sexism, racism, and inappropriate behavior involving underage stars and members of the shows overseen by Schneider, as well as allegations from crew members they were continuously asked to massage Schneider on set.
