Preview: A Friend of the Family

A Friend of the Family

A nine-episode limited series 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 neighbour 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.
Featuring a stellar ensemble cast, A Friend of the Family stars Oscar® Award-winner Anna Paquin (Flack, The Irishman, True Blood), Emmy® Award-nominees Jake Lacy (The White Lotus, Being the Ricardos), Colin Hanks (The Offer, Impeachment: American Crime Story) and Mckenna Grace (Ghostbusters: Afterlife, The Handmaid’s Tale).

A Friend of the Family – First three episodes available on Peacock from Friday 7 October.
