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 County Choppers". Today, the company that began as a side operation has become a world-famous empire.
Steve approaches Paul Senior about the idea of expanding the OCC brand and offering the public a chance to own an affordable and customizable Orange County Choppers motorcycle. Senior loves the idea and Jason gets to work designing a large display unit that could be installed in dealerships and retail outlets, showcasing the new bike designs. The pressure is on to get both bikes built in time for a major gathering with investors and retailers. In the midst of it all, Shaquille O'Neal shows up at OCC to order a very large custom chopper.
