TEUTULS RETURN HOME TO DISCOVERY CHANNEL FOR SOME SERIOUS BATTLES ON MONDAYS THIS FALL

--AMERICAN CHOPPER: SENIOR VS JUNIOR To Air October 18-November 15 at 9PM and 10PM (ET/PT) --

(Silver Spring, MD) - If you missed it on TLC, now is your chance to catch back-to-back episodes of fan favorite AMERICAN CHOPPER. Beginning Monday, October 18th for five weeks only, Discovery Channel welcomes back the dramatic edition of AMERICAN CHOPPER: Senior vs. Junior. Airing each Monday at 9 PM (ET/PT) and 10PM (ET/PT) (10 pm was the series' original timeslot) Discovery Channel takes the Teutuls back to where it all began, as the forever feuding father and son 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, and Discovery captured that drama for years on the hit series, AMERICAN CHOPPER. Known for their heated arguments, the relationship between Sr. and Jr. finally exploded in 2008 when Sr. fired Jr. from Orange County Choppers (OCC). In this limited television event, Discovery Channel will air the ten episode story arc of the feud in its entirety.

Clark Bunting, President and General Manager of Discovery Channel and President of Science Channel said, "We are thrilled to have Paul Sr., Paul Jr. and Mikey back home, where it all began for them," said Clark Bunting, president and general manager, Discovery Channel. "The AMERICAN CHOPPER franchise is a signature series for Discovery, and we wanted to provide our viewers with front row seats to watch this now famous family drama unfold."

"It's good to be back on Discovery," said Paul Teutul, Sr., founder and CEO of Orange County Choppers. "We started on Discovery way back when and it just feels right to be back. I am pumped that the Discovery viewers will once again see what AMERICAN CHOPPER is all about."

Said Paul Teutul Jr., "I couldn't be more thrilled to be back on Discovery Channel. Paul Jr. Designs has been working hard to bring things full circle, and being back on Discovery on Monday nights just completes that journey for me."

Once partners, Sr. and Jr. are now fierce competitors at competing motorcycle shops. AMERICAN CHOPPER: Senior vs. Junior captures the 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.

AMERICAN CHOPPER is produced by Pilgrim Films and Television. The executive producer for Pilgrim Films and Television is Craig Piligian. For Discovery Communications, Christo Doyle is executive producer.
