Jan Broberg became a household name after the award-winning true-crime documentary based on her 1970s kidnapping, ABDUCTED IN PLAIN SIGHT, was released on Netflix in 2019.

Jan is an accomplished actress having appeared in over 50 films and television shows. Additionally, she serves as a producer on the Peacock series, A FRIEND OF THE FAMILY, based on her family’s horror story about the grooming and abuse by a trusted family friend.

In 2019, Jan was honored with The Hope Award from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children for her advocacy and public outreach on behalf of children at risk of assault, particularly by someone they know.

She launched The Jan Broberg Foundation in 2022, created to highlight her mission of helping victims of abuse heal and thrive, and to prevent abuse from happening in the first place by emphasizing the insidious crime and pathology of the groomers who perpetuate these crimes.
