MTV TO PRE-RELEASE FIRST EPISODE OF GROUNDBREAKING DOCU-SERIES "GENERATION CRYO" EXCLUSIVELY IN THE MTV APP A WEEK BEFORE ITS ON-AIR PREMIERE

Series Follows the Remarkable Journey of 17-Year-Old Breeanna Who Discovers 15 Half Brothers and Sisters on Her Quest to Find the Donor - the Biggest Mystery of Her Life

New York, November 18, 2013 - MTV today announced it will pre-release the first episode of its groundbreaking docu-series "Generation Cryo" tonight at 12AM ET, exclusively via the MTV app, available on iPhone, iPad, Xbox 360 for Xbox Live Gold members in the U.S., a week before its on-air premiere on Monday, November 25 at 10:00pm ET/PT.

"We've been actively experimenting with introducing new shows on the app to help build awareness and buzz leading to the premiere on television," said Robyn DeMarco, Executive Vice President of Programming and Content Strategy for MTV. "Our audiences are living on these devices and these platforms provide new opportunities to super serve exclusive content to our fans while simultaneously creating new ways to integrate our ad partners."

The series documents the journey of 17-year-old Breeanna who recently learned that she has at least 15 half-siblings fathered by the same anonymous donor, #1096. Armed with this newly obtained information, Bree sets out to meet her half-brothers and sisters and encourages them to help her find out more about their donor. Realizing that they are more similar than any of them could have imagined, Bree immediately connects with her siblings who accept her unconditionally. Along the way, what starts off as a meeting of strangers becomes an intense and emotional bonding of family. For a link to the trailer, click here.

"Generation Cryo" is produced by Off the Fence for MTV with OTF's Michael Lang, Ellen Windemuth and Rob Schwarze serving as Executive Producers. Marshall Eisen, Nomi Ernst Leidner, Betsy Forhan, and Dave Sirulnick are Executive Producers for MTV. Dave Wadsworth is the Supervising Producer for OTF. Jonathan Mussman is Executive in Charge, MTV. Wendy Kramer is the Associate Producer and the Founder and Director of the Donor Sibling Registry.

This marks the latest in a line of recent innovative experiments by Viacom Music and Logo Group aimed at providing fans with immediate access to exclusive content within its brand apps. Recently, MTV became the first network to pre-release an entire season of a series, "Wait 'Til Next Year," in its app prior to premiere on television. During the pre-release, the show helped drive the app's biggest streaming week to date per person and increased downloads 47% week-over-week. Additionally, the series' television premiere drew an 8% uptick in P12-17. When fans banded together to tweet #UnlockMiley to access two new clips for the "Miley: The Movement," MTV app installs increased more than 80 percent week over week.

In addition, following the television premiere of "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story," VH1 placed the film exclusively in the VH1 app for a week and generated 1.4 million streams of the film and other TLC content. With the launch of the CMT app, the first episode of the new season of Sweet Home Alabama was pre-released in the CMT app a week before its television premiere.

The MTV, VH1 and CMT apps provide fans unmatched access to a library of current as well as retro favorites via TV Everywhere. Access to full-length episodes in the apps are included as part of a subscriber's TV service package from any one of ten distributors, including AT&T U-verse, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, DIRECTV, EPB Fiber Optics, Hawaiian Telcom, RCN, Suddenlink, Time Warner Cable and Verizon FiOS, which collectively reach almost 50 million homes. Subscribers simply need to sign in with their TV provider credentials to watch full episodes. All users will be able to access original content that extends the narrative of the show, including after shows, cast interviews and original webisodes. In the coming months, Viacom Music and Logo Group will launch similar app experiences for Logo.
