PROVOCATIVE NEW DOCUMENTARY "SPERM DONOR" PREMIERES SEPT. 27 AT 9PM ET/PT ON STYLE

One Man. 74 Kids. And Counting...

IN THE PROVOCATIVE NEW DOCUMENTARY "SPERM DONOR," THE STYLE NETWORK EXPLORES THE COMPLEX AND EMOTIONAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SPERM DONORS AND THEIR OFFSPRING

The One-Hour Special Premieres Tuesday, September 27 at 9:00pm ET/PT

LOS ANGELES -- September 7, 2011 - The Style Network takes a look at the fascinating, unchartered and unregulated world of sperm donors and their offspring in the new one-hour documentary "Sperm Donor," premiering Tuesday, September 27 at 9:00pm ET/PT. In the documentary, one donor, Ben, learns that his donations have been used to produce 74 children - with more live births still occurring. An additional storyline features half-sisters from different parts of the country who meet face-to-face for the very first time.

"Sperm Donor" follows two different donor families who connect through the Donor Sibling Registry (DSR). For Ben, who donated while in college more than 10 years ago, he is shocked to learn that he has more than 70 offspring - and now he must break the news to his fianc´┐Że. As she grapples with the information and how this will affect their future, Ben makes plans to meet a mother from Seattle and her two children - both born through Ben's sperm donation and who have his DNA. The documentary also explores the relationship between half-sisters who recently found each other through the DSR after discovering their mothers used the same sperm donor. While donor siblings, Adrienne and Karis, have only talked on the phone and video chatted on the computer, Adrienne surprises Karis with a visit to help her half-sister prepare for her senior prom.

"Sperm Donor" is a production of Off The Fence. Lauren Lazin serves as Executive Producer and Director, and Sarah Weidman is Executive Producer for Style.

The one-hour documentary is part of the network's "Style Exposed" platform. This initiative, which launched in July, introduces inspiring, compelling and thought-provoking documentaries that explore some of the most talked about topics and trends in today's culture.
