TNT to Pay Tribute to Steve Jobs Tonight With Presentation of "Pirates of Silicon Valley"

TNT will pay tribute to Apple founder Steve Jobs tonight with a special presentation of the TNT Original Pirates of Silicon Valley. The movie will air at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

Starring Noah Wyle (TNT's Falling Skies) as Steve Jobs, Anthony Michael Hall as Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Joey Slotnick as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Pirates of Silicon Valley follows the fascinating and unforgettable race between technology rivals Apple Computers and Microsoft. From nights of dorm-room tinkering to days of boardroom scheming, their fierce and often humorous battle to rule the fledgling computer empire literally changed the world.

Pirates of Silicon Valley premiered on TNT in 1999 and went on to earn five Emmy(R) nominations, including Outstanding Made for Television Movie and Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries or Movie. The movie was written and directed by Martyn Burke, who adapted the script from the bestselling book Fire in the Valley by Paul Frieberger and Michael Swaine. Pirates of Silicon Valley was produced for TNT by Haft Entertainment, with Steven Haft and Nick Lombardo serving as executive producers.
