[via press release from TLC]


Premieres on Thursday, August 12th at 9 PM (ET/PT)

(Los Angeles, CA) - Hold on tight. After what seemed to be the end of AMERICAN CHOPPER, the hit series returns to TLC in full force with a dramatic new edition - AMERICAN CHOPPER: Senior vs. Junior. Airing Thursdays at 9 PM (ET/PT) beginning August 12, the 13-part series follows the forever feuding father and son as they now go head-to-head building bikes in competing businesses.

It's been a wild ride for the Teutuls, who are no strangers to family conflict. Paul Sr. and his sons, Paul Jr. and Mikey are known for their heated arguments, but last season the relationship exploded when Sr. fired Jr. from Orange County Choppers (OCC). Once partners, they are now fierce competitors at contending motorcycle shops. AMERICAN CHOPPER: Senior vs. Junior captures the renewed rivalry as Paul Sr. continues to build world famous custom bikes at OCC, while Jr. opens up Paul Jr. Designs - his startup shop located across the street from OCC's original site. And the location isn't the only rub - Jr. heats-up the competition by bringing back former OCC employees including his brother Mikey, Vinnie DiMartino, Robert 'Nub' Colard and Joe Puliafico.

In the battle between old and new, the father-son duo vie to see who can produce the most innovative choppers - with Sr. focusing on cutting edge technology while Jr. taps into his roots, building more traditional creations. In addition to the always impressive bike builds, this season follows Paul Jr., as he struggles to launch a new business in a turbulent economy and handles the pressure of planning a wedding with his new fianc´┐Że. The constant tension between the Teutul family and the OCC and Paul Jr. Designs staff, creates opposition like we've never seen before. The first episode gets off to a fiery start with an on-air radio confrontation between Jr. and Sr., laying the groundwork for the family feud that is destined to escalate over the course of the season.

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