Paul Teutul Sr. returns to television, this time on CMT for a new “Orange County Choppers” 8-episode series premiering Saturday, November 16 at 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT. Content? Same as usual: “Senior” takes on the most challenging bike builds of his careers, navigates tight deadlines, shows lofty ego. All this with the complicity of a team of rowdy co-workers doing outrageous pranks…
Highlights from the premiere season of “Orange County Choppers include”:
1- An international client orders a custom “dragon bike” that becomes one of the most intricate builds the team has ever taken on. When a prank goes awry and a piece of the dragon is broken, all hands must be on deck to resolve the problem and finish the bike by the time the client returns to the US.
2- One of America’s most beloved restaurants commissions Senior and his team to build a bike for a giveaway at their annual national convention. It’s crucial that the bike impress the audience of nationwide franchise members. Pressure mounts toward the end of the assembly when a problem with an important bracket and a chrome-bubbling issue threaten to keep the bike from the looming reveal date.
3- GAF, the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, orders a bike to present to a veteran on stage at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The team only has two and a half weeks to design and build a chopper that’s worthy of a Purple Heart recipient—and that will be unveiled in front of thousands of die-hard motorcycle fans.
