MTV's 'Generation Cryo' Docu-Series Gets Premiere Date and Trailer (Video)
MTV is readying the launch of Generation Cryo.
The new effort, which explores the issues faced by young people conceived through anonymous sperm donation, will launch on Monday, Nov. 25, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The six-episode, one-hour docu-series follows the journey of 17-year-old Breeanna, who recently learned that she and at least 15 half-siblings were fathered by the same sperm donor.
A two-minute trailer highlighting Breeanna's story of being raised by two moms also debuted along with the announcement. Through the Donor Sibling Registry, Breeanna connects with her new siblings, and they embark on a mission to find their donor.
Their search brings up some heated debates. "This guy, he ain't family," one of the parents declares, while one of Breeanna's half-siblings asks, "I have my own dad. Why do I need to even think about this guy?"
