Jesse James goes for the Spike

JessejamesJesse James, who has become the Oprah Winfrey for grease monkeys as the producer and star of Discovery Channel’s “Monster Garage,” is relocating his TV garage to Spike TV.

Viacom-owned cabler has cut a two-year deal with James and his Payupsucker Prods. that calls for him to get under the hood to produce two primetime speshes and two pilots per year. First pilot under construction is “Metal Church,” described as a vehicle for showcasing James’ “vast welding and fabricating talents.”

“I look forward to busting my a**,” James said in announcing the new pact.

Before his TV career took off in 2000 with the Discovery skein “Motorcycle Mania,” James earned his reputation in motor-psycho circles as the founder of West Coast Choppers, where he custom-built bikes for bikers’ sake, at the rate of only 12-14 a year. The way James’ legend is growing, maybe Brad Pitt will play him some day in a movie too.
