On Tuesday, we reported that Nickelodeon had parted ways with Dan Schneider, the producer behind shows like Kenan & Kel and All That, among many others. The children’s network ended its relationship with Schneider after almost 25 years, and Deadline reported that the move happened as Schneider was “under a cloud of suspicion over the treatment of some younger stars of his shows.” Today, more details are emerging, including the fact that Schneider might have received a $7 million payout to leave his job.
Schneider was not just a successful producer at Nickelodeon; he is also credited with discovering some of the network’s most famous and influential child stars including Ariana Grande, Amanda Bynes, Jamie Lynn Spears, Kenan Thompson, and Victoria Justice. Schneider also created shows like iCarly, Drake & Josh, Victorious, Kenan & Kel and Henry Danger.
