American Chopper is back as Paul Teutul Sr, and Pilgrim Productions Announce New Orange County Chopper’s TV show slated for 2013

Paul Teutul Sr and Craig Piligian struck TV and Motorcycle Gold 10 years ago with American Chopper and now after years of drama, on and off the camera, this original team of “Mad Motorcycle Builder”, and “Savy TV Producer” try to hit the motherload yet one more time.
Announcing a partnership with CMT, production is scheduled for this summer. Sources inside are mum about exact dates but Pilgrim Productions is currently asking for resumes for a “right hand man” for Paul Sr. for the new show. Teaser videos on the Pilgrim site seem to be dated and from the old show and no promos are out other than a news release earilier this summer.

According to news releases Paul Sr., Pilgrim Productions and CMT have contracted for eight, 1 hour long episodes.

A review of the major players of past American Chopper seasons would lead you to believe that neither Paul Jr., Mikey, Vinnie DiMartino, or Rick Petko are involved. We checked several sources and no one is talking. Paul Jr. does admit to having several deals in the works but nothing to announce yet.

Paul Jr has continued to do shows and seems to still have some drawing power and looks like he is making some appearances at some major shows. Mikey is doing some smaller venues and still is showing art and traveling a bit. Vinnie DiMartino, with the help of Cody, is running his own shop working on cars, customizing, and also doing some bike work. Rick is back in Stroudsburg, Pa running his own shop RPD and Co.

It looks like Pilgrim is looking for yet another personality to mix with Paul Sr’s abrasive bad attitude and make some new TV magic. Stay tuned.
