He had been planning a new show which had a working title 'A Five Star Option' which aimed to follow him as he searched for local ingredients around Florida to turn into 'five star star' meals.

Filming had already taken place on several pilot episodes before the scandal broke and he was axed.

Calhoun, who reportedly had a wife and six children, became known for pop-up restaurants and being a gourmet chef through his business Café de la Calhoun.
