StoriesDrake Bell Reveals Sexual Abuse by Dialogue Coach Brian Peck in 'Quiet on Set' Series

In the Investigation Discovery series “Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV,” former Nickelodeon actor Drake Bell courageously tells his story of being sexually abused by dialogue coach Brian Peck. August 2003 saw Peck’s arrest on a number of charges stemming from claims of having sexually abused minors. The series exposes hazardous working conditions in Dan Schneider’s children’s shows.

Drake Bell, a former Nickelodeon child star, has come forward to talk about how dialogue coach Brian Peck sexually abused him. As part of the upcoming Investigation Discovery documentary titled “Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV,” the actor, who is best known for his work on kid-friendly television programs like “The Amanda Show” and “Drake & Josh,” has come forward to claim that he was the victim of sexual abuse.

Peck and Bell collaborated on episodes of “The Amanda Show” and “Drake & Josh.” According to reports on Variety, Peck was taken into custody in August 2003 on a number of charges pertaining to claims that he had sexually abused children. He pleaded ‘no contest’ in 2004 to charges of oral copulation with a kid under 16 and performing indecent acts with a 14- or 15-year-old. Consequently, in October 2004, he was ordered to register as a sex offender and given a 16-month jail sentence.

In a clip from “Quiet on Set,” Bell courageously comes forward in public to talk about his claimed history of abuse and the effects it had on him. The importance of Bell’s testimony is emphasized in a statement from Investigation Discovery. This is the first time Bell has publicly shared his abuse experience. “The clip reveals that former ‘Nickelodeon’ star Drake Bell will be sharing publicly, for the first time, the story of the abuse he suffered at the hands of Brian Peck, his former dialogue coach, who was convicted in 2004 for his crimes against Drake and ordered to register as a sex offender,” the statement read, according to Variety.

The goal of the docuseries is to expose the unhealthy working environments that produced children’s television in the 1990s and early 2000s. The focus of the upcoming show will be on those from “iCarly” and “Zoey 101” creator Dan Schneider. The last time Drake Bell made headlines was when he entered a guilty plea to charges involving a fifteen-year-old girl who had met him online and gone to one of his shows in Cleveland.

Bell entered a plea of guilty via Zoom to the misdemeanor charge of transmitting material harmful to minors and the felony of attempted child endangerment. Cleveland’s sentencing date is set for July 12. After entering a guilty plea to a fourth-degree felony charge of attempted child endangerment and a misdemeanor charge of spreading harmful material to minors, he was sentenced to two years of probation and 200 hours of community service.
