Dan Schneider got his start in TV as an actor. He appeared in several small roles in TV and film before getting a recurring role in Head of the Class in the 1980s. He became recognizable for playing Dennis, the guy who sits in the back at the computer on that show.
However, he’s much better known now for being the creator and executive producer of several successful TV shows on Nickelodeon. After ending his work in front of the camera, Schneider managed to get some work as a writer on one of Nickelodeon’s new shows. That show, All That, became an instant hit, and sparked several spin offs.
After writing for All That, Schneider got an opportunity to executive produce Kenan and Kel, and then The Amanda Show. Schneider created the Amanda Show, with star Amanda Bynes, who was previously on All That. Bynes went on to become a major star.
Those successes allowed Dan Schneider to get multiple other opportunities to create TV shows for Nickelodeon. Schneider created his own production company, Schneider’s Bakery, and created several more hit shows for Nick.
Starting with Drake and Josh, Schneider created spin-off iCarly with Miranda Cosgrove, Zoey 101 with Jamie Lynn Spears and Victoria Justice, Victorious with Victoria Justice, Game Shakers, Henry Danger, and Sam and Cat with Ariana Grande and Jeanette McCurdy.

Schneider also created the movie Big Fat Liar, with Amanda Bynes and Frankie Muniz.
