Use the search function on your cable remote, your Apple TV or Netflix. Type in the word "motorcycle." I do this once a month or so in search of new movies, TV shows, reality series about my favorite things, bikes. If you do so as well, you'll likely be disappointed. There just aren't that many choices for motorcycle fanatics. But there is going to be a new choice to get your biker fix.

The Discovery Channel announced a new series called "Sacred Steel" that will focus on a motorcycle shop, that's much more than just a shop. According to a press release by the network, "Jason Wilson opened shop with Sacred Steel over a decade ago and never looked back, crafting custom fabricated high-end choppers and painstakingly restoring American classics. From humble beginnings, Jason and his motley crew of misfit friends honed their mechanical skills and founded Douche Larouche, now a full-fledged institution, complete with bylaws, regular meetings and in chapters across the country and around the globe."

No word yet on when it will arrive on the air, but it will be part of Discovery's "Motor Mondays" which includes the extremely popular series "Fast n' Loud" based on Dallas custom bike and car shop Gas Monkey Garage.

(Los Angeles) – Discovery Channel announced today it has ordered SACRED STEEL to air as part of the network’s iconic Motor Mondays line-up. The series, produced by Half Yard Productions, will take viewers inside one of the most exclusive and unusual bike clubs in the world that produces one-of-a-kind pieces of art.

Jason Wilson opened shop with Sacred Steel over a decade ago and never looked back, crafting custom fabricated high-end choppers and painstakingly restoring American classics. From humble beginnings, Jason and his motley crew of misfit friends honed their mechanical skills and founded Douche Larouche, now a full-fledged institution, complete with bylaws, regular meetings and in chapters across the country and around the globe.

This is the ultimate anti-bike gang – full of self-proclaimed “motorcycle dorks” who jokingly call themselves the “12 percenters” (far from the 1 percenters out there). Club members range from noteworthy fabricators and childhood friends, to highly connected icons in the world of underground bikes. All their joking aside, the club is a tight-knit brotherhood with members having everybody’s back and having the time of their lives.

Each year, Jason and the team transform dozens of bikes into masterpieces. If the customer has the cash or the connections, there is no limit on what they can do. Through favors to other members, neighboring chapters, and friends of friends, Jason has grown an immense clientele alongside his wild crew. SACRED STEEL captures the build along with the adrenalin-fueled world of bikers. The guys are as loud as their bikes – and enjoy having fun along the ride.

SACRED STEEL is produced for Discovery Channel by Half Yard Productions. For Half Yard, Executive Producers are Sean Gallagher, Abby Greensfelder and John Jones. For Discovery Channel, Executive Producers are Craig Coffman, Christo Doyle and John Slaughter and Producer Meagan Davis.
