Watch Colin Hanks & Jake Lacey in ‘A Friend of the Family’ Trailer

A Friend of The Family is streaming October 6th on Peacock:

A Friend of the Family is based on the harrowing true story of the Broberg family, whose daughter Jan was kidnapped multiple times over a period of years by a charismatic, obsessed family “friend.”

The Brobergs — devoted to their faith, family, and community — were utterly unprepared for the sophisticated tactics their neighbor used to exploit their vulnerabilities, drive them apart, and turn their daughter against them. This is the story of how their lives were permanently altered — and how they survived.

Audiences were first introduced to Jan Broberg’s story in the hit Netflix documentary, “Abducted in Plain Sight” produced by Emily Kincaid and Stephanie Tobey.
