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

Former Nickelodeon star Kel Mitchell shared an incident involving Dan Schneider on the set of All That. The 45-year-old actor recalled the heated moment during a podcast with Keke Palmer.

Recollection of the Incident

Mitchell explained on the June 11 episode of Palmer’s podcast, Baby, This Is Keke Palmer, that he was 18 or 19 years old when Schneider, a writer for All That, directed anger towards him. “The vibe of the show started to change a little bit,” Mitchell recounted, referring to the departure of key production staff, including co-creator Brian Robbins.

One specific altercation with Schneider escalated significantly. “I remember me and Dan had a big argument on set,” Mitchell continued. Schneider led Mitchell into a closet where the confrontation intensified. “He just took off, you know, just yelling all this wild stuff,” Mitchell recalled.

Aftermath and Professional Decisions

Following the disagreement, Mitchell chose to walk away from Schneider. “Being an adult at this point, I had a decision to make. Either we were going to fight or I was going to leave,” he stated. “So that’s what I did. I left the situation.”

Contextual Background

Mitchell is among several Nickelodeon alums who have spoken out about negative experiences involving Schneider. Schneider, who has an extensive history with the children’s network including co-creating shows like The Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, and iCarly, has faced various allegations. Earlier this year, Investigation Discovery released the docuseries, Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV, which detailed Schneider’s tenure and alleged misconduct. The series also touched on allegations involving dialogue coach Brian Peck.

Schneider’s Response

In March, Schneider addressed these claims in an interview, stating that watching Quiet on Set forced him to confront “my past behaviors, some of which are embarrassing and that I regret.” He acknowledged the need for apologies to those he affected. “It hurts my heart that I didn’t pay that forward to every employee that walked through my door. I wish I could go back and fix that,” he added.
