MTV has announced it will be airing a one-hour tribute celebrating the life of the late 'Jackass' star Ryan Dunn. 'The Ryan Dunn Tribute' Special is scheduled to air on Mon., Nov. 28 at 10:30PM ET on MTV.

Dunn, who died in a high-speed car wreck in June of 2011, was a beloved member of the 'Jackass' crew, and was featured prominently in their TV series and film franchise.

"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," Johnny Knoxville said in a statement.

In the wake of Dunn's death, hundreds of 'Jackass' fans traveled to the area in Pennsylvania where he drove his car off the road, leaving flowers and well-wishes.

The special will include previously unseen footage of Dunn from his days on 'Viva La Bam,' and the 'Jackass' TV show and films.

"Weaving together footage of Ryan for this special reminds us all of what a special friend he was to so many," Van Toffler, President of Viacom's Music Group, said. "He is sorely missed by his MTV family and fans, but his mischievous, caring spirit lives on."
