The docuseries sees Bell speak out for the first time about his former dialogue coach Brian Peck, who spent 16 months in prison in 2004 after being convicted of committing a lewd act against a child and oral copulation of a person under 16.

Former All That castmembers Bryan Hearne, Katrina Johnson, Giovonnie Samuels and Kyle Sullivan and director Virgil Fabian will “pull back the curtain on the culture on set of the beloved teen sketch series,” while The Amanda Show writers Jenny Kilgen and Christy Stratton “expose allegations of a toxic and sexist environment.” The docuseries will also feature former Double Dare host Marc Summers, Zoey 101‘s Alexa Nikolas and other cast, crew and parents of child actors.
