Kirk Cameron Discusses Connection to ‘Quiet on Set’ Predator, Says He’s ‘Taking Back Children’s Entertainment’

Christian actor Kirk Cameron had personal experience in his youth interacting with convicted sex offender Brian Peck, one of the subjects of the recent exposé, “Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV.” The docuseries recounts abuses suffered by children and adults who worked on Nickelodeon shows in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Editor’s note: This article contains information about sexual abuse and assault that some readers may find disturbing and/or triggering.

While Cameron said he thankfully escaped being harmed by Peck, he is sickened and saddened by what happened to other child stars in the entertainment industry, particularly “Drake & Josh” star Drake Bell. Cameron said the “darkness” in children’s entertainment is one reason he is creating his own kids show, “Adventures With Iggy and Mr. Kirk.” 

“Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re no doubt like many other millions of Americans absolutely disgusted,” said Cameron in an April 9 social media post, “ready to throw up in your mouth over the moral perversion and twisted sickness that’s coming out about people who are being employed at children’s television networks like Nickelodeon.”

Kirk Cameron Creates Show for Kids

Kirk Cameron, who starred in “Fireproof” and three “Left Behind” movies that were released in the early 2000s, became famous through the sitcom, “Growing Pains,” which ran from 1985 to 1992. During his time on the show, he worked with Brian Peck.

 “Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV” was released on March 17 and 18 and takes a look at some of the experiences of child actors and adults who previously worked on Nickelodeon’s kids shows. Four episodes originally aired in the series, and a fifth episode released on April 7.

Many of the allegations in “Quiet on Set” center on producer Dan Schneider, who is accused of controlling behavior and sexual harassment, and the series also spends a fair amount of time reporting Brian Peck’s behavior. One of the most upsetting stories the docuseries tells is that of Peck’s relationship with Drake Bell, who starred in Nickelodeon’s show, “Drake & Josh,” which ran from 2004 to 2007, not counting television specials.
