Drake Bell Reveals In New Docuseries He Was Abused As A Child Actor By Dialogue Coach

After 20 years of silence, “Drake and Josh” star Drake Bell is revealing the abuse he suffered as a child star at the hands of a dialogue coach, Brian Peck, in the new Investigation Discovery show “Quiet On Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV.” In 2004, Peck pleaded no contest to the charges of a lewd act against a child and oral copulation of a person under 16 and was ordered to register as a sex offender. But because Drake was a minor at the time, and the records remained sealed, no one knew he was the victim until now. Access Hollywood has the moment Drake came forward for the first time and has a sneak peek at the series which also calls into question concerns over Nickelodeon’s Dan Schneider. Dan has never been charged with any crimes and his spokesperson released a statement to Access which did not directly address the abuse allegations. The four-part docuseries “Quiet On Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV” will air over two nights, March 17 and March 18 at 9/8c on Investigation Discovery.
