Netflix fans urged to watch new 'twisted' true crime documentary after new trailer drops

Netflix fans urged to watch new 'twisted' true crime documentary after new trailer drops

The Netflix series is available to stream on the platform from 3 July

Netflix subscribers are being urged to watch a 'twisted' new true crime documentary that is set to drop next week.

There is plenty of true crime to sink your teeth into on the popular streamer, some more shocking than others.

However, you just have to watch the trailer for this particular doc to see how wicked it really is.

Take a look for yourself:

The documentary tells the story of Jonathan Meijer; a sperm donor who, with his good looks and head of thick blond hair, seemed like a dream for many prospective parents.

Meijer told people looking for a donor that he only planned to donate his sperm to a handful of families, but as you'd probably expect, this was all a lie.

In the three episodes of The Man With 1000 Kids, a sickening and 'twisted' story is told from interviews with parents and experts who were blindsided by Meijer's actions, which led to him fathering an estimated 1000 children.

He somehow racked up kids across the globe by donating his sperm in numerous different countries, on top of 11 sperm banks in the Netherlands and private donations.

Speaking about Meijer's actions, director Josh Allot told Tudum: “You get one life on this Earth — why has he chosen to use his charm and his intellect and his creativity in order to try to procreate on a mass scale and deceive all these people?

“Speaking to lots of different parents that have met him and people that know him well, it seems like it almost became an addiction for him.”

As part of the series, interviewees share their determination to stop the apparent serial donor.

But after watching the trailer, viewers have been left divided over whether Meijer was really to blame.

One person argued it was the sperm banks that should have been more cautious, writing: "Shouldn’t they blame the sperm banks and not the donor? Aren’t the banks regulated? They should be the ones to stop the guy from donating?"

Others, however, had the blame game on Meijer, with another person writing: "Just imagine if he has a very rare disease or condition, all the 1000 babies will inherit it."

"I’m very confused why they’re all upset," another wrote. "They went to a facility to get pregnant, you got pregnant, had the baby you wanted.

"Yeah it’s a ton of kids but you don’t have to take care of those kids and clearly there’s a demand for his type."

You can make your own mind up when The Man With 1000 Kids releases on Netflix on 3 July.
