Plot Synopsis

THE MAN WITH 1000 KIDS is a three-part documentary that uncovers the tale of a charming Dutch scammer, Jonathan Meijer, who is accused of traveling the world deceiving mothers into having his babies on a mass scale. The series investigates the murky world of the fertility industry and uncovers how due to a lack of global regulations, some international fertility clinics continue to allow anonymous donations. In the three-parter, the call for Meijer's accountability begins when one parent of a child conceived with Meijer's help figures out a curious number of half-siblings lived around town. Meanwhile, at Isala Fertility Center, a doctor receives an anonymous email alleging that one of their donors had possibly fathered more than 150 children in the Netherlands. The donor worked directly with families and donated to other banks, in violation of a signed agreement with Isala. The docuseries features interviews with a number of parents who are still grappling with the repercussions of Meijer's actions, as well as the lawyer, fertility activist, and medical professional who work to try to stop him. All three episodes of THE MAN WITH 1000 KIDS dropped on Wednesday, July 3, 2024 on Netflix.
