Kel Mitchell Recalls Dan Schneider Yelling at Him on All That Set

On the set of All That, Kel Mitchell, a former Nickelodeon star, claimed that Dan Schneider yelled at him in a closet.

On Tuesday, June 11th, Mitchell, 45, relived that tense moment on Keke Palmer's podcast, Baby, This Is Keke Palmer. He informed Palmer that he was angry at Schneider, a writer for Mitchell's sketch comedy program All That, when he was eighteen or nineteen years old.

The tone of the program began to shift somewhat. Regarding the changes in the All That cast, Mitchell said that "[Co-creator of the show] Brian Robbins started doing Varsity Blues and all these different movies and the production team started to blow up, so they left." "And they left us with Dan Schneider, the chief writer." He's writing, so we sort of cross paths sometimes.

"I recall having a heated argument with Dan on set one day," he went on. "Let's go over here to this room right here, in this closet," he said. After shutting the door, he just started running and shouting all these crazy things.

Mitchell turned and left Schneider behind.

"As an adult now, you know what I mean? I had to make a choice. He said, "I was simply thinking, well, either we [are] going to fight or I'm going to go. That's what I ended up doing. I got out of there.

Mitchell is the most recent former Nickelodeon employee to discuss bad experiences collaborating with Schneider, 58, who co-created a number of shows for the children's network, including Drake & Josh, iCarly, and The Amanda Show. Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV, an explosive docuseries that explored Schneider's time at Nick and his alleged improper actions, was published earlier this year by Investigation Discovery. It also discussed claims of sexual assault, in reference to Brian Peck, a former conversation coach.

Schneider said that viewing Quiet on Set forced him to confront "my past behaviors, some of which are embarrassing and that I regret, and I definitely owe some people a pretty strong apology" in his first interview addressing the allegations against him, which he conducted in March.

At the moment, he stated, "I can tell you why it hurts really bad for me." "My early experiences and my first encounters in the entertainment industry are vividly remembered by me. I was nervous, enthusiastic, and green. Receiving those chances meant the world to me, and when I took them, I was fortunate because they were excellent.

In retrospect, "It breaks my heart because I should have paid that forward to every employee that walked through my door," he said. "I hope I could go back and make that right."
