MTV announced Friday that they plan to air a one-hour special devoted to “Jackass” star Ryan Dunn, who died in a horrific accident while driving drunk in June. Dunn was 34.
The tribute will reflect on Dunn’s childhood in Ohio as well as his years of mischief with “Jackass” star and best friend Bam Margera and his untimely death in the crash which also killed his passenger. It will include commentary and accounts from Margera, Johnny Knoxville, Rob Dyrdek, Wee Man, Chris Pontius, Jeff Tremaine, and more.
“It’s a surreal thing to undertake, doing a tribute to our brother Ryan’s
life. I still can’t believe he’s gone, but we wouldn’t trust anyone else with
this, so we are doing the best we can for Ryan, his family, friends and everyone
who loved him,” Knoxville says in a statement. He and Tremaine are executive-producing the hour along with Spike Jonze and Derek Freda.
The special is set to air Nov. 28 at 10:30 p.m. EST.
