The G4 network will feature Dunn’s most memorable appearances on G4, along with inteviews with those who knew him, in a special episode of “Attack of the Show,” scheduled for July 19 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Also, in keeping with the wishes of Dunn’s family, the network will relaunch Dunn’s show “Proving Ground,” which had aired only one episode before Dunn’s death. The network pulled the show after news broke of the fatal collision.

A total of nine episodes were made, and the show will resume with episode two, in its original time slot, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on July 19.

In a press release, G4 President Neal Tiles said: "Ryan was an incredible talent who will be missed tremendously by his many fans, including G4 viewers. It was important to all of us at G4 to find a way to celebrate his life and pay tribute to him. With the support of Ryan’s family, we’ve decided to air the remaining episodes of G4’s ‘Proving Ground’ and give his fans the opportunity to continue watching this series that he was so passionate about."
