NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Pilgrim Studios is looking for a chopper maniac who will serve as Paul Teutul Sr.'s right-hand man on a new television series.
Orange County Choppers, based in New York State, will begin production on a new television series for a new network. OCC's website says the new series will air on CMT.
"The team needs some fresh blood, someone who will work alongside Paul Sr., running the shop...," said Shaun Hoff, manager of talent development and casting for the studio. "This is a full-time job working with OCC on- and off-camera."
The original casting call expired in mid-May; however, it seems the studio is still looking for candidates.
Hoff said the studio wants someone who really understands the chopper lifestyle. "It doesn't matter what your specialties are in the motorcycle world," he said. "As long as you KNOW the world of choppers, are outgoing, fun and think you can withstand [Paul Sr.'s] onslaught when he's angry, then we want to hear from you."
The opening is a paid position. Filming will begin in New York later this summer, Hoff noted.
Anyone wanting to audition should send an email with your name, location, phone number, recent photo and a brief explanation of why you'd be the best on-screen companion for Paul Sr. to firstname.lastname@example.org. "Feel free to send resumes, photos of work you've done or any other material you think we need to see," Hoff said. Only legal U.S. residents can apply, he added.
