AMERICAN CHOPPER Returns to TLC Paving the Road for Exciting New HEAVY HAULERS Pilot

- Unmatched Teutul Family Drama at 9 PM and a Whole New Family Business -- the Dangerous World of Moving Superstructures at 10 PM-

SILVER SPRING, Md., Oct. 15 -- The AMERICAN CHOPPER saga continues with all-new episodes on Thursday, October 22, at 9 PM (ET/PT) following the escalating Teutul family feud that threatens to destroy the once close-knit family--and change the face of Orange County Choppers forever. Following AMERICAN CHOPPER, TLC continues the family drama with HEAVY HAULERS at 10 PM (ET/PT), a new pilot documenting the dangerous and dirty exploits of Jeremy Patterson and his larger-than-life family as they move record-breaking superstructures across America for a living.

"Whether it's creating amazing bikes or hauling massive structures, these families are accomplishing unique and incredible feats," says Nancy Daniels senior vice president of production for TLC. "Add the drama of a family business and the dynamic created when talented people work together in intense situations and you can't stop watching."

Season six of AMERICAN CHOPPER continues to captures the action at Orange County Choppers (OCC), the world-famous custom motorcycle business run by Paul Teutul Sr. and until recently, his fiery sons, Paul Jr. and Mikey. As always, the process of creating eye-popping bikes is a big part of the show--but lately, the real story is the deterioration of the Teutul family. With Jr. and Mikey no longer working at the shop, Sr. is focused on building the business. Jr. continues to grow his new company and Mikey, no longer able to fall back on OCC, struggles to find his way in the world.

Despite the drama, the guys in the shop must forge ahead with the business of building bikes. The beginning of the season unveils a Saginaw Chippewa Indian tribal themed bike, the "Siemens Smart Chopper," the first ever custom electric motorcycle, as well as a custom bike for OCC: The Band (comprised of Orange County Choppers co-workers). Airing October 29, the episode follows the creation of the classic rock compilation CD OCC Rocks (available on October 27), which features Sr.'s all-time favorite songs (artists include Mountain, Eddie Money, Rick Derringer and Kansas) and three new tracks by OCC: The Band, with Paul Sr. singing on their rendition of "Summertime Blues." The album features the bike on the cover, and will be available at all major retailers and digital stores.

HEAVY HAULERS follows a family of structural movers as they race against the clock and battle extreme odds to move mansions, trains, planes, churches and ships hundreds of miles over treacherous terrain. No structure is too large for monster movers Jeremy Patterson, wife Tonya, 12-year old son Greg and 9-year old daughter Ashley, who built the business from the ground up and now move over 350 structures per year. The pilot episode follows the family's brave attempt to shift a 400-ton brick mansion five miles across Iowa under extreme weather conditions.

AMERICAN CHOPPER is produced by Pilgrim Films and Television. The executive producer for Pilgrim Films and Television is Craig Piligian. HEAVY HAULERS is produced by Windfall Films. Executive producers for Windfall Films are Abigail Harvey, Carlo Massarella and David Dugan.
