Netflix’s “Abducted In Plain Sight” is getting a podcast spin-off.
“In the podcast, Broberg addresses her father’s sexual encounter with her kidnapper, her father’s sexual orientation, and the world’s reaction to her parents after the release of the film. The podcast will also include audio recordings of the kidnapper’s audio journals that were recovered by the FBI [and] the kidnapper’s wife sharing her thoughts on her husband’s more virtuous qualities.
Obsessed With: Abducted In Plain Sight, which will be hosted by the film’s director Skye Borgman, is itself a spin-off of true crime comedy podcast True Crime Obsessed. It becomes the first podcast from the Obsessed Network, which was established by Patrick Hinds.”
“Abducted In Plain Sight tells the true story of Broberg, an Idaho teenager who was abducted by her neighbor Robert Berchtold in the 1970s on two separate occasions. Broberg went on to become an actress and starred in TV series including CBS’ Touched By An Angel and The WB’s Everwood as well as feature Maniac alongside Elijah Wood.
