Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss and his wife, actress and dancer Allison Holker, had a string of television projects in the works before his death earlier this month.
Boss, a judge on season 17 of So You Think You Can Dance, died by suicide on Dec. 13. He was 40. The beloved former DJ and co-executive producer on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, was found dead inside a motel room in Encino, California.
His death has left executives at HGTV trying to figure out what to do next because Boss and Holker were developing multiple shows for the cable network.
According to Deadline, the couple was scheduled to start filming a new limited series in January, that would show them overseeing the construction of a life-size Malibu Barbie Dream House. HGTV had even selected a location for the shoot in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Los Angeles.
The network is now trying to decide how to proceed.
“We are taking the time to consider different scenarios,” a spokesperson for HGTV told the publication. “But for now, our primary focus remains on wishing our best to Allison and the entire Boss family during this difficult time.”
The couple was also developing a series called Living the Dream that would follow them as they helped first-time home buyers find their dream home.
Boss and Holker had both previously worked with the network.
Holker hosted HGTV’s Design Star: Next Gen, which premiered in 2021. Boss served as a guest judge on the series.
The two were also looking to launch a new dance competition series and a game show as they expanded their footprint in Hollywood.
