THE EGG FACTOR
Season 1, Channel Premiere
Weekdays at 06:50, 12:15 and 18:30 from 27th January to 5th February.

For millions of women, the path to creating a healthy baby comes with a choice they never imagined: accepting the end of their own genetic lineage and relying on another woman’s donated egg. Egg donation allows for a life-making possibility, it is a timely topic and it is controversial. The decisions around it are delicate and difficult, yet it is redefining what it means to be a modern family.

“Egg Factor” is a groundbreaking and gripping new series that follows the fascinating lives of people involved in creating families with donated eggs. In the series, hopeful parents who have struggled to conceive are finally able to realize their dream of creating a baby because of healthy eggs from young women who willingly go through the grueling egg retrieval process. 

The Journeys are both extraordinary and entertaining as the donors, too, have their own dreams and dilemmas. The lives of these different women are explored intimately as they intertwine in a complex and compelling tale, one with the most wondrous result: a new life.
