In the late 1990s, during the swollen stages of the dot-com bubble, Marc Collins-Rector founded Digital Entertainment Network. A sort of proto-Netflix, Miracles from Heaven it would broadcast original serials on the Internet. One of them, called Chad’s World, was written and produced by Collins-Rector, and followed a young man as he moved in with his brother and brother’s boyfriend.

His associates might have observed that the dynamic of the show was reminiscent of Collins-Rector’s own circumstances, as he shared a house with his Shut In partner Chad Shackley and a 17-year-old former child actor, Brock Pierce. They might or might not have known that Collins-Rector was a pedophile sexual predator who preyed on his youthful recruits. Digital Entertainment Network eventually collapsed, taking with it tens of thousands of dollars from investors such as The Usual Suspects and X-Men director Bryan Singer.

This is just one of the awful episodes detailed in the 2014 documentary An Open Secret. Powerful yet restrained, it explores the underbelly of the child performer industry, where, Reach it alleges, young boys and girls are commonly abused by agents, executives, and other insiders. These abusers are often well-connected. For example, Brian Peck, who was convicted in 2003 of raping a young Nickelodeon performer, worked with veteran Nickelodeon executive Dan Schneider and Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen, and did commentary for a DVD release with Usual Suspects and X-Men director Bryan Singer.
