HBO is honoring the late James Gandolfini with a special on Sunday night.

James Gandolfini: Tribute to a Friend will debut on Dec. 22 at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The 35-minute show features more than two dozen friends and colleagues remembering the three-time Emmy winner, who died June 19, 2013 at age 51 from a heart attack, while vacationing in Italy.

Along with first-person reflections, the special features clips of Gandolfini’s work, as well as behind-the-scenes footage.

The premium network has been making full seasons of The Sopranos available on via HBO on Demand on a monthly basis since July. The second half of the series’ sixth and final season is currently in the rotation, including its controversial coda, “Made in America.”
