A docu-series that uncovers the toxic culture behind some of the most iconic children's shows of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV is a 2024 American five-part documentary television series that details some of the behind-the-scenes world at children's television programs from the 1990s to the 2000s, with a special focus on Dan Schneider's tenure as a producer and showrunner at Nickelodeon. The first four episodes aired March 17-18, 2024, on Investigation Discovery, and the fifth episode aired on April 7. The series was simultaneously released on Max and Discovery+. The series was produced by Maxine Productions with Sony Pictures Television Nonfiction and Business Insider. The series was loosely based on a Business Insider article about Nickelodeon from 2022. After the series was released, the show was positively reviewed by audiences and critics, with praise given to individuals who alleged having negative experiences working at Nickelodeon. However, criticism was drawn to the documentary not going into detail of Nickelodeon's workplace culture. Schneider has since released an apology video on his YouTube channel, fueling further discussions from other Nickelodeon stars and further comments from the individuals featured in the documentary. In addition, several of the individuals who wrote pleas for leniency for sex offender Brian Peck following his conviction have publicly rejected supporting him, especially in light of the documentary. The series has also led to a widespread debate, particularly on social media, around industry practices with regards to child actors, the loss of innocence, and the cost of fame for child stars.
