The series features interviews with former child actors and writers who give disturbing details about Nickelodeon’s working environment at the time, including s*xual harassment, racism, and body shaming.

Arguably, some of the most notable accusations revolve around Brian Peck (no relation to Josh Peck), a dialogue coach who was convicted in 2004 of sexually abusing a minor. The docuseries reveals that Drake Bell, star of the hit show Drake and Josh, was the victim of Peck.

Speaking in public for the first time about the abuse, Bell details the disturbing allegations against Peck.

Bell revealed that, while sleeping at Peck’s house one night, the then 15-year-old “woke up and he was sexually assaulting me,”

Peck was arrested on 11 charges, including sodomy, convicted, and required to register as a s*x offender.
