Drake Bell alleges sexual abuse from Brian Peck in ‘Quiet on Set’

Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell is set to reveal his experiences of alleged abuse at the hands of Brian Peck, a dialogue coach he worked with as a child actor.

The allegations will be detailed in an upcoming docuseries titled “Quiet On Set,” which aims to shed light on the darker aspects of children’s television.

Bell, known for his roles on “The Amanda Show” and later “Drake & Josh,” will discuss how he was allegedly sexually abused by Peck, who was arrested in 2003 on charges related to sexual abuse involving a minor. Peck was convicted in 2004 after pleading no contest to charges including oral copulation with a minor under 16 and performing a lewd act with a 14- or 15-year-old. He served 16 months in prison and was required to register as a sex offender.

The docuseries, set to premiere on March 17, 2024, promises to be a platform for Bell to share his story publicly for the first time. The announcement has sparked discussions about the need for greater protection of child actors in the entertainment industry.

Investigation Discovery, the network airing the docuseries, has stated that the series will feature Bell’s account of the abuse he suffered at Peck’s hands. The network hopes that Bell’s courage in coming forward will encourage others who have faced similar experiences to speak out.

The entertainment community has reacted with support for Bell, while also expressing shock and concern over the allegations. The case has highlighted the importance of vigilance and accountability in preventing abuse within the industry.

As the premiere of “Quiet On Set” approaches, many are anticipating the impact Bell’s revelations will have on the conversation surrounding child safety in show business.
