The Employables (formerly known as Employable Me) is a new docuseries following struggling job seekers with conditions such as autism or Tourette Syndrome as they search for meaningful employment. With the help of specialists, each job seeker uncovers their talents and works to show potential employers that their perceived disabilities can often provide unexpected benefits in the workplace.

Each one-hour episode of The Employables follows two neuro-diverse job seekers as they work to overcome obstacles and find fulfilling employment that provides them with the skills to excel long term in their careers. Each participant works with an autism or Tourette Syndrome specialist to identify their strengths and determine how best to pursue their job search. Once they understand their talents, each job seeker sets out on interviews or trial runs with potential employers to find the perfect line of work. In addition to following the job seekers, the series also shines a light on the highs and lows that their friends and family have experienced as they support them in their goals. A&E will be providing information online and via social media about organizations that offer programs and resources for neuro-diverse individuals and their families.
