Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell has come forward with allegations of sexual abuse against Brian Peck, a dialogue coach on popular kids' shows "All That" and "The Amanda Show."

The accusations surfaced during a preview of Investigation Discovery's docuseries "Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV," set to air on March 17 and 18.

In the preview released on Tuesday, March 5, Bell is seen preparing to share his story of alleged abuse by Peck during his time on "The Amanda Show."

The clip features an interviewee expressing concern over Peck's past, referring to him as a "sexual predator."

Bell then appears, poised to discuss his experience, but the footage cuts off abruptly.

Accompanying the preview, a press release confirmed Bell's intent to publicly disclose his ordeal for the first time. Peck, who was convicted in 2004 for similar offenses against Bell, was ordered to register as a sex offender.

"Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV" aims to shed light on the toxic work environment prevalent in children's shows during the 1990s and early 2000s.

Peck's history of child molestation accusations dates back to his arrest in August 2003, resulting in a 16-month prison sentence and registration as a sex offender in late 2004.

However, the spotlight has also turned on Bell, who faced legal trouble in 2021 over alleged misconduct with a young fan.

Accused of initiating "blatantly sexual" conversations with her online since she was 12, Bell pleaded not guilty initially.

Ultimately, he struck a plea deal, resulting in a conviction of felony attempted child endangerment and a misdemeanor charge.

As the investigation unfolds, both Bell and Peck's cases underscore the complexities surrounding child
 protection in the entertainment industry and raise important questions about accountability and transparency.
