A Friend of the Family

Based on the true story captured by the Netflix documentary Abducted in Plain Sight, the scripted version delves deeper into the disturbing story of a family whose young daughter is kidnapped multiple times by an obsessed neighbor in the 70s. Less focused on the shock than on the how it all happened, the abducted child (Jan Broberg) serves a producer on the show, and the writing and performances, including by Anna Paquin and Colin Hanks, take this 9-episode series beyond true crime tropes.
