AMERICAN CHOPPER Rides Into A Sixth Season on TLC

- The Most Dramatic Season Ever Airs Thursdays at 9 PM Beginning April 9 -

SILVER SPRING, Md., March 16 -- TLC's popular series AMERICAN CHOPPER returns on Thursday, April 9, at 9 PM (ET/PT) with all-new episodes like you've never seen before -- featuring unmatched family drama that will change the dynamics of Orange County Choppers forever.

Still riding strong in its sixth season, AMERICAN CHOPPER follows the action at Orange County Choppers (OCC), the world-famous custom motorcycle family business run by Paul Teutul Sr. and his fiery sons, Paul Teutul Jr. and Mikey. As always, creating eye-popping bikes is a big part of show -- but this season, the real story is the mounting tension between Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. Sure, the duo is known for arguing over deadlines and designs, but now, viewers see the situation explode in a confrontation that results in serious damage not only to the family shop, but to their personal relationship.

Each episode of AMERICAN CHOPPER captures the day-to-day drama inside one of the world's leading custom bike shops as the family battles impossible deadlines to build some of the most aggressive, creative custom choppers around. The new season documents the growing pains as OCC continues to expand in a challenging economy, as well as the evolving relationship between Paul Sr., his sons, the extended Teutul family and their OCC staff. From heated arguments and humorous antics to creative setbacks and artistic triumphs, AMERICAN CHOPPER celebrates one family's struggle to achieve the American dream.

AMERICAN CHOPPER gets off to a hot start with OCC taking on the challenge of a double build. Two bikes -- one commissioned by the National Hockey League and the other by Northrop Grumman, maker of the B-2 bomber. Both bikes feature cutting-edge designs and intense fabrications. In the second episode, the guys go tie-dyed in twisted metal, taking on a '60s-themed project to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. And in the third episode, the OCC gang heads to Anchorage, Alaska, to build a bike in honor of Alaska's 50 Years of Statehood Celebration. For more episode information, visit TLC.com.

AMERICAN CHOPPER is produced by Pilgrim Films and Television. The executive producer for Pilgrim Films and Television is Craig Piligian. The executive producer for TLC is Christo Doyle.
