And Dan and Schneider’s Bakery are proud of the work they did together with Nickelodeon and will always remain big fans of the network.
Schneider has been Nick’s top creator/showrunner of live-action comedy hits for the past two decades. He is credited in part with discovering such young actresses as Ariana Grande, Amanda Bynes, JamieLynn Spears and Victoria Justice who were case as leads of his series.
But along with all his success, for years, Schneider had been under a cloud of suspicion over the treatment of some younger stars of his shows.
