A Friend of The Family is a cautionary tale that happened in real life. This five-episode Mini series is based on actual events experienced by the actress Jan Broberg. Her story is first told in the Netflix documentary Abducted in plain sight. I am sure all of us as children had got entrusted by our parents to friends, relatives, and even paid babysitters. They have to because they have to leave at the moment.
It was a stroke of good luck for me that all of the people my parents trusted were deserving of their trust. The events surrounding Jan are a different story because she got kidnapped by the same individual on two separate occasions. Because he is a friend of the family, her parents put their faith in this particular individual.
