Proving Ground, a G4 reality show starring the late Ryan Dunn of Jackass fame, might be shelved in the wake of Dunn’s death at 34 after a fiery car crash in Pennsylvania Monday.

“The show is off the schedule as of today until we discuss next steps,” a G4 spokeswoman told The Washington Post‘s TV writer, Lisa de Moraes.

The half-hour show, which premiered last week, showed Dunn and co-host Jessica Chobot trying to re-create movie stunts on the streets, with the help of experts; there are eight episodes remaining that the network is undecided on.

The cable channel, which is owned by Comcast, issued this statement Monday: “All of us at G4 are shocked and deeply saddened by the tragic news that Ryan Dunn has passed away.

“Ryan’s comedic wit and signature no-holds-barred approach made him an incredible talent and his work on G4’s ‘Proving Ground’ was flawless.”
