When there is a killer next door, you never know.

A Friend of the Family is the latest series from The Act and Candy executive producer Nick Antosca, who will serve as showrunner, EP, and writer for the upcoming Peacock limited series, which begins October 6.

A Friend of the Family features Lio Tipton, Mckenna Grace, and Hendrix Yancey, who are all enraged by a next-door neighbor's impulsive mood swings, including the pilot. Jan and Mary Ann Broberg also serve as producers on the series.

In a press statement, showrunner Antosca said it's easy to judge the Broberg family's story from the outside. Sometimes, people react defensively: What happened? It's a strange story. I wanted to understand from the inside, to understand each family's experiences, and to assist audiences in understanding their own story.

Antosca credits a master manipulator who preyed on the Brobergs' weaknesses and sexual preferences to slay their daughter.

According to the Peacock show, the series transcends the usual genre boundaries. Its a murder mystery centered around obsessive relationships, a family drama, and a dark coming-of-age event. This is also a horror story that is also about survival.

Jan Broberg noted that most predators aren't strangers; they're rather people we know, someone who is familiar with the intricacies of family relationships around them.

Broberg said she was sexually assaulted and severely brainwashed by a man who I trusted from the age of 12 to 16. It will make you laugh, it will make you angry, and it will make you angry. Good. I hope that our story will spark conversations. Secrets live in darkness and silence.

Peacock premieres A Friend of the Family on October 6th.
