TLC has announced American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior will premiere Thursday, August 12 at 9PM ET/PT.
American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior will follow Paul Teutul, Sr. as he operates his Orange County Choppers motorcycle business in Newburgh, NY while his estranged son Paul Jr. runs his own Paul Jr. Designs startup motorcycle shop across from OCC's original location in nearby Rock Tavern.
Adding some drama to the reality series' new format is that Paul Jr. has hired several former OCC employees -- including brother Mikey as well as Vinnie DiMartino, Robert "Nub" Colard and Joe Puliafico.
American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior will also follow Paul Jr. struggling to launch his new business while planning his wedding with his fiance while Paul Sr. focuses on brining new technology into his established shop.
American Chopper's sixth and supposed final season premiered in Spring 2009 and the finale aired in February. The season featured Paul Sr. feuding with Paul Jr. and Mikey, resulting in their departures from OCC.
Afterward, the show continued to chronicle the men's separate activities, which included Paul Sr. continuing to run OCC on his own and Paul Jr. attempting to launch his own design business.
