Peacock has shared a trailer for showrunner Nick Antosca’s (The Act, Channel Zero) new true crime limited series A Friend of the Family, which is based on the harrowing story of the Broberg family, whose teenage daughter was kidnapped on multiple occasions by a neighbour. 

The drama features a cast that includes Anna Paquin (True Blood), Jake Lacy (The White Lotus), Colin Hanks (The Offer), Mckenna Grace (Ghostbusters: Afterlife); check out the trailer below, along with some official promotional images…

A FRIEND OF THE FAMILY is 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 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.

A Friend of the Family is set to premiere on Peacock on October 6th in the US and October 7th in the UK.
