The recent documentary, "Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV," has unleashed horrific stories about child stars in the industry and has shone a light on numerous accusations against producer Dan Schneider. They include famous figures such as Drake Bell, Giovonnie Samuels, Alex Nikolas, and Bryan Christopher.

As of now, the documentary does not include other acts like "Victorious" star Ariana Grande. In fact, the publication reports, a 30-year-old Grande does not deny the truth of the stories being told in the documentary but simply feels unprepared to take them to the public.

Another feeling shared by other contacted celebrities who are now on the documentary list include Amanda Bynes and Jamie Lynn Spears. But the stars did not seem to be amazed by the accusations drawn in the documentary, even though not having taken part in the documentary.

The report is that they feel there has been a trespass of limits in their time in the industry. "Quiet on Set" premiered in March 2024 and has generated talks on the dark side of child stardom and the entertainment world in general.

Grande's Reflective Insight

Before the release of the documentary, Ariana Grande made a cryptic social media post that suggested she had been let in on some of the issues that were going to be addressed. She posted, "The truth always comes out in the end, no matter how hard anyone tries to hide it or stop it." This in turn has led to the suggestion that she probably has an idea of some of the challenges she has to go through in the industry, which she might speak about when she finds it's time.

Grande shared that she already knew most of the underlying truths to be unraveled by the documentary and is fine with being open to discussing her life experiences when the time is right. While the debate on the treatment of child stars in Hollywood ranges from cold to supernova heated, the "Quiet on Set" documentary continues to bring more insight into very pertinent issues concerning accountability and reforms in the industry.
