SAN DIEGO - Hannah Anderson was kidnapped after cheer practice, after her mother and brother were murdered. Now her story is a TV movie that will soon premiere on Lifetime.
In August of 2013, the then 16-year-old Anderson was allegedly abducted by family friend, James Dimaggio, and held captive for 6 days.
Nearly two years later, Lifetime announced it was coming out with a movie titled "Kidnapped: The Hannah Anderson Story."
The news was an unwelcome surprise to Anderson's grandparents.
"You would think that they would have contacted the family... and it's just a heartbreaking to see that it keeps on going," Anderson's grandmother, Sara Britt, said.
Britt said her grand daughter and the family found out about the film Monday, May 11. She said they were never made aware a film was being made on the teenager's experience.
"We heard about it [Monday morning.] Hannah texted me from school. She was upset. The kids had been talking the movie... and she wanted to know if I knew anything about it, and of course not," Britt said.
Britt said her grand daughter is an honor roll student and scheduled to graduate from El Capitan High School this year.
"I just tell [Hannah] to be strong and positive like she is and just carry on and ignore what's going on an move ahead," Britt said.
The movie premiers on the cable network later this month.
