The world’s most renowned custom motorcycle manufacturer and its fearless leader return to television in Orange County Choppers, a new eight-episode series premiering on CMT later this year. With production scheduled to begin this summer, the show follows Orange County Choppers founder Paul “Senior” Teutul Sr. and his team as they reach new extremes resulting in mind-blowing bikes and state-of-the-art drama. Known for his mustache, tattooed biceps and sleeveless T-shirts, Senior has been at the helm of OCC for more than 10 years. In the ’70s, he was running a steel manufacturing business when he started building motorcycles as a hobby. In 1999, he 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.
