Nickelodeon Part Ways With Producer Dan Schneider

Decision Comes of the Heels of the Cancellation of Sitcom 'Game Changers'

Nickelodeon has ended its working relationship with Dan Schneider, the creator of many of the network’s hit programs such as “iCarly,” “Zoey 101” and “Drake & Josh,” for current reasons unknown.

“Following many conversations together about next directions and future opportunities, Nickelodeon and our long-time creative partner Dan Schneider/Schneider’s Bakery have agreed to not extend the current deal,” Nickelodeon and Schneider said in a joint statement. “Since several Schneider’s Bakery projects are wrapping up, both sides agreed that this is a natural time for Nickelodeon and Schneider’s Bakery to pursue other opportunities and projects.”

Schneider, a former actor whose credits include sitcom “Head of the Class,” has a history with the kid-focused network that dates back to the 1990s when he meet Nickelodeon’s Albie Hecht, who hired him to work on the sketch comedy “All That.”  The decision to part ways comes on the heels of the cancellation of Schneider’s comedy “Game Shakers” after three seasons.
