"Jonathan and Drew are the epitome of innovative, multi-talented television stars and they inspire audiences no matter the vehicle, no matter the platform," said Allison Page, General Manager, U.S. Programming and Development, Scripps Networks Interactive in a statement. "We have big ideas in development at HGTV and there’s no way we would want to continue our creative journey without the Scott brothers.”
