G4 Will Pay Tribute to Ryan Dunn with One-Hour "Attack of the Show!" Special That Features Interviews with Friends and Looks Back at Some of Dunn's Most Memorable Moments

Los Angeles, June 27, 2011 - G4 announces plans to celebrate the life and career of Ryan Dunn with a special tribute episode of the network's live daily series "Attack of the Show!" on July 19 at 7pm ET/PT featuring Dunn's most memorable moments on G4 as well as interviews with some of his closest friends and colleagues. Following the special, G4 will pay homage to Dunn's work and respect the wishes of Dunn's family to bring back "G4's Proving Ground." Only one episode of the new series had aired prior to Dunn's death and the show was taken off the air following the tragic news. The nine-episode series will resume with the second episode in its original timeslot on July 19 at 8pm ET/PT.

"Ryan was an incredible talent who will be missed tremendously by his many fans, including G4 viewers," said Neal Tiles, President, G4. "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."

The sneak peek premiere of "G4's Proving Ground" on Tuesday, June 7 during G4's E3 coverage averaged 149,000 viewers and the series resonated with G4's young male audience, capturing the imagination of gamers, movie fans and pop culture enthusiasts. The series continued to gain traction and nearly 600,000 total viewers saw the premiere episode during its original run.

The series follows Dunn and co-host, Jessica Chobot ("Attack of the Show!", IGN), along with a team of experts, specialists and prop masters from the worlds of film and television, who assist the two in determining if great pop culture moments can be executed in real life through action-oriented trials, stunts and experiments. Once the best strategies and tactics are determined, all plans and materials are then taken to the "Proving Ground" to be executed and reveal once and for all if the pop culture moment in question can in fact happen in real life. New episodes will resume in the series' original timeslot on Tuesdays at 8pm ET/PT and include shows dedicated to pop culture icons such as The Goonies, Harry Potter and Star Wars.

"G4's Proving Ground" was created and is executive Produced by Michael Bloom and Bruce Klassen for Bongo Pictures, along with Laura Civiello, Vice President of Development and Darren Wadyko, Director of Development at G4.

"G4's Proving Ground" resumes Tuesday, July 19th at 8 pm ET/PT, only on G4. For more information, please go to: http://g4tv.com/provingground
