DESCRIPTION: (from MTV's press release, October 2013) MTV today announced that it will premiere the compelling docu-series "Generation Cryo," which explores families and the issues faced by a new generation of young people conceived via anonymous sperm donation, on Monday, November 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. 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. What follows is a six-episode, one-hour series that re-defines what it means to be a modern family. Hoping to find out more about her family history, Bree visited the Donor Sibling Registry, a website dedicated to connecting sperm donor families. 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.
