The Controversy and Allegations Surrounding ‘iCarly’ Creator, Dan Schneider, Explained

Dan Schneider at Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards

From the 1990s to the early 2000s, Dan Schneider was one of the biggest names in children’s TV. He first began working for Nickelodeon in 1994, serving as a producer, writer, and guest star for All That and Kenan and Kel. Schneider worked his way up fast, and by 1999, had created and debuted his own Nickelodeon hit TV series, The Amanda Bynes Show. For the next (nearly) two decades, he was the creator behind many of Nickelodeon’s most popular TV shows.

Among Schneider’s most popular works are iCarly, Drake and Josh, Zoey 101, Victorious, Sam & Cat, and Henry Danger. For many of us Millennials and Gen-Zers, Schneider’s shows made up a significant portion of our childhood. With hit show after hit show and a slew of Emmy and BAFTA nominations for Best Children’s Program, Schneider seemed an unstoppable force in the industry. That’s why it was so surprising, in 2018, when Nickelodeon abruptly announced they were cutting ties with Schneider.
