TNT will air 'Pirates of Silicon Valley' tonight to honor Steve Jobs

The death of Apple co-founder and overall innovator Steve Jobs has prompted TNT to order a re-broadcast of their Emmy-nominated original film, Pirates of Silicon Valley.

The film, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET, chronicles the race and rivalry between Apple Computer and Microsoft and stars ER actor Noah Wyle as Jobs. Anthony Michael Hall and Joey Slotnick also star as Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, respectively.

Originally aired in 1999, the movie earned five Emmy nominations, including one for Outstanding Made for Television Movie.
