Drake Bell Alleges He Was Sexually Abused as a Child Actor by Nickelodeon Dialogue Coach Brian Peck

Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell is set to reveal his experience of alleged sexual abuse by Brian Peck, a dialogue coach on Nickelodeon’s “All That” and “The Amanda Show,” in the upcoming Investigation Discovery series “Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV.”

In the series, Bell will speak out about the abuse he allegedly suffered at the hands of Peck, who was convicted in 2004 for his crimes against Bell and was ordered to register as a sex offender. Peck’s arrest in August 2003 on multiple charges related to sexual abuse allegations involving an unnamed minor led to his plea of no contest in May 2004 for performing a lewd act with a 14- or 15-year-old and to oral copulation with a minor under 16.
