'American Chopper' Returns to Discovery in Winter 2018

Postado Outubro 19, 2017

It's been half a decade since viewers were last embroiled in the father-son motorcycle drama of the hit reality series, American Chopper.

On the new show, the Teutuls "set out reclaim their preeminent bike brands and hopefully rebuild some sort of relationship... with A-list celebrities, world famous athletes and Forbes 100 businesses as clients, millions of dollars and their brands' reputations are on the line with every signature build".

The Teutuls have been on a wild ride, and it certainly isn't ending anytime soon.

Paul Sr. has transformed Orange County Choppers from a mere bike shop into a massive complex, featuring a "café, bowling alley, restaurant and of course, the showroom". "Designs especially now that he has his own family".

American Chopper is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Productions in association with executive producer Craig Piligian.

One of Discovery's most popular shows, as well as one that helped to usher in the unscripted cable boom, American Chopper made its debut in 2002 as a TV special, and went on to air for four seasons before shifting over to TLC for the next two seasons.

Commentary: Late previous year, Paul Sr. had been talking about doing an online version of the show that would give them a bit more creative control with a crowd-sourced funding model. I love seeing the fantastic bikes the Teutul family can create. Paul Jr. has a son of his own. I will definitely give this a shot.
