Orange County Choppers Gears Up on CMT

Paul Teutul Sr. Will Star in Eight-Episode Series Starting Nov. 16

The world-renowned custom motorcycle shop and its fearless leader return to television in Orange County Choppers , CMT’s new eight-episode series premiering Nov. 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. This turbo-charged series follows Paul Teutul Sr. (“Senior”) and his team as they take on the most challenging bike builds of their careers.

In each hour-long episode of Orange County Choppers, Senior and his team navigate tight deadlines, lofty egos and all the chaos that emerges from a group of rough and rowdy co-workers, including some of the most outrageous pranks ever.

When 23-year-old Evan Favaro is hired as creative director, he has no choice but to hit the ground running. Favaro must earn the respect of his new colleagues and prove he’s worthy of his new position by demonstrating leadership ability and undeniable design and fabrication skills.

Highlights from the CMT’s Orange County Choppers include:

• 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 States.

• One of America’s most beloved restaurants commissions Senior and his team to build a bike for a giveaway at their annual national convention. The event is a huge corporate initiative for the company, and it’s crucial that the bike impresses 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 being completed by the looming reveal date.

• 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.
