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.

    Awesome movie! The scene where Noah Wyle puts his bare feet up in the middle of the boardroom is the best part!

    I love that movie and feel it’s a neat way for TNT to give a nod to a great American innovator!

    They need to make a sequel.

    Nothing like running a movie that paints someone as a deadbeat dad and a thief as a “tribute” to him.

    • Mike

      Yeah, darn those facts painting him in a bad light.

      I found it to be a very interesting portrait of both him and Gates, showing the good and bad in both. They were human with all their faults, but they were fascinating people who have influenced culture in major ways.
