"Hairy Bikers" on History Channel is a reality docu-series following Paul Patranella, who is a 4-star, classically trained French chef who loves motorcycles, and Bill Allen, a renowned motorcycle mechanic, who is passionate about food. These two long-time friends know that food is the ticket to the American experience and motorcycling is the only way to get there.

Paul and Bill embark on an amusing and informative road trip along back roads to immerse themselves in local American history and long-standing traditions. But they don't just cook and eat with the locals — they do everything it takes to put the meal on the table. They spear bullfrogs, trawl for shrimp and capture gators with a cross bow; they clean road kill, harvest wheat for beer, and track down wild boars.

Bill and Paul explore the different old-school eating habits of various regions, from the southern Louisiana coast to South Carolina's Low Country, from the Great Smokey Mountains to central Oklahoma and beyond. They learn folklore and age-old customs as they hunt, gather, cook, and eat side-by-side with a colorful assortment of local characters.

Back on the open road, the boys camp, fix up motorcycles, stop at roadside attractions, and swing by local biker events — all part of the "Hairy Bikers" mission to experience first-hand why eating and biking are some of America's favorite pastimes.

The "Hairy Bikers" title has been sold in over 160 territories worldwide including Australia, China, Egypt, Italy, Norway, Slovenia, Taiwan and more, capturing the imagination of cooking enthusiasts and redefining the genre. The original "Hairy Bikers" on BBC Two in the UK has completed their 8th season, repeatedly demonstrating phenomenal success with viewers.

"Hairy Bikers" is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for History. Executive Producer is Dawn Fitzgerald. Executive Producer for History is Julian P. Hobbs. Executive Producers for BBC Worldwide Productions are Elli Hakami and Jane Tranter.
