Sean McElwee To Return For Season Three On The Emmy Winning A&E Series "Born This Way"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 04, 2017) - Sean McElwee is proud to announce his return to the hit Emmy-winning A&E series "Born This Way," which returns for all new hour-long episodes for its third season starting Tuesday, May 16th at 9PM and 10PM ET/PT. Sean, one of the break-out stars of "Born This Way," will have a story-line that continues his "Ladies' Man" status that will involve a dramatic "love triangle" as well as a bumpy trial run sharing a house with his roommate Steven. Sean also gets some medical news and is faced with an unexpected diagnosis during this new season.

Winner of the 2016 Emmy Award for Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program, "Born This Way" follows a group of seven young adults born with Down syndrome as they pursue their passions and lifelong dreams, explore friendships, romantic relationships and work, all while defying society's expectations. In their willingness and courage to openly share their lives, through a lens that is not often shown on television, we learn they have high hopes just like anyone else. The series also gives voice to the parents, allowing them to talk about the joy their son or daughter brings to their family, and the challenges they face in helping them live as independently as possible. "Born This Way" is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions for A&E Networks.

Sean, who was born and raised in Orange County, CA, has been the subject of 3 books written about his journey going through the standard school system to help other parents of children with Down syndrome. Growing up, Sean always wanted to perform (and specifically be on TV) and started singing and dancing in school and church since the age of 3. Taking drama lessons up through high school, Sean continued to study theatre in community college before being 'discovered' by the casting team on "Born This Way" through his work with the Down syndrome Association of Orange County.

Sean is also proud to announce he has started his own company Seanese (www.seanese.com) where he will have shirts, hats, bags and mugs made with the funny things he says on "Born This Way." He has decided to give back to the community that has helped him along the way by donating a percentage of his profits to a different charity every month of the year. Sean hopes that his work on "Born This Way," as well as his public speaking engagements, will show the world that having Down syndrome isn't bad and for parents to see that having children with Down syndrome can grow up and be great. Sean hopes to make his mark in the world of Entertainment, continue his love of golf (through participating in charity golf tournaments), growing Seanese and looks forward to all the opportunities that lie ahead. Sean is repped by Gail Williamson of KMR Talent Agency in Los Angeles.
