ORANGE COUNTY CHOPPERS AND PAUL SENIOR ARE BACK AT IT WITH A BRAND NEW SERIES ON CMT

LOS ANGELES - May 20, 2013 - The world's most renowned custom motorcycle manufacturer and its fearless leader return to television in ORANGE COUNTY CHOPPERS, a new eight-episode series produced by Pilgrim Studios and premiering on CMT later this year. With OCC revitalized in killer style, the show follows Paul Teutul Sr. ("Senior") and his team as they reach new extremes resulting in mind-blowing bikes and, of course, state-of-the-art drama. Production is slated to begin this Summer.

"We're thrilled to be back on television doing what we do best: building outrageous custom motorcycles," said Teutul, founder of Orange County Choppers. "We have a lot of very cool projects coming up and can't wait to deliver on this new partnership with CMT and Pilgrim."

Added Pilgrim Studios' Craig Piligian, "Pilgrim's relationship with Paul Sr. goes back more than a decade, and we've seen his creative and mechanical genius first-hand. We're so glad to be working with him again and look forward to bringing OCC's unique brand of excitement and inspiration to CMT viewers."

In each hour-long episode of ORANGE COUNTY CHOPPERS, viewers get to see a completely different side of the OCC crew. In addition to following the build process, they also watch the guys wreak havoc on the grounds, pull insane pranks and get into explosive blowouts. Some fan favorites return along with plenty of fresh faces.

Known for his mustache, tattooed biceps and sleeveless tees, Senior has been at the helm of OCC for over ten years. In the '70s, he was running a steel manufacturing business when he started building motorcycles as a hobby. In 1999, Senior turned his passion project into a fabrication shop he called Orange Country Choppers. Today, the company that began as a side operation has become a world-famous empire. Senior can also add author to his repertoire; in 2010 he published The Ride of a Lifetime: Doing Business the Orange County Choppers Way, a guide to business success that also chronicles his nearly 40 years of experience in the business world.

ORANGE COUNTY CHOPPERS is executive produced by Pilgrim Studios' Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis, and CMT's Jayson Dinsmore, Joe Livecchi and Julia Silverton.
