THR EXCLUSIVE

TLC is reviving its veteran "American Chopper" franchise.

The canceled series ran for six seasons -- first on Discovery Channel, then on TLC -- with its supposed final episode airing Feb. 11.

But the network has made a deal with the entire Teutul clan that fronts the series, set at motorcycle builder Orange County Choppers in Montgomery, N.Y., for another round.

The news will be announced this week during the network's upfront presentation.

TLC recently made headlines by acquiring Mark Burnett's nature documentary "Sarah Palin's Alaska," and former "Jon & Kate Plus 8" star Kate Gosselin is starring on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."
