About ‘A Friend of the Family’

Set in Idaho in the ’70s, “A Friend of the Family” focuses on the Brobergs and their family friend, Robert Berchtold, who goes by “B.” Over multiple years, B gains the Brobergs’ trust, manipulates them, and becomes oddly close with their young daughter, Jan.

Later, B goes on to kidnap Jan on multiple occasions when she is 12 years old and again when she is 14. The series reveals how this continued to happen and how B turned on the charm to throw off the community.

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.

The cast of “A Friend of the Family” features Jake Lacy, Anna Paquin, Colin Hanks, Lio Tipton, Mckenna Grace, Hendrix Yancey, Mila Harris, Maggie Sonnier, Elle Lisic, Norah Murphy, Austin Stowell, Patrick Fischler, Bree Elrod, Ella Jay Basco, and Philip Ettinger.
