Pirates of Silicon ValleyAs the world mourns the loss of Apple visionary Steve Jobs, TNT will rebroadcast its Jobs-centric film, 'Pirates of Silicon Valley,' on Thurs., Oct. 6, 8PM ET.

A rerun of the movie will air at 10PM ET.

'ER' star Noah Wyle played Jobs opposite Anthony Michael Hall as Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Joey Slotnick as Apple's co-found Steve Wozniak.

The 1999 film was nominated for five Emmys, including Outstanding Made for Television Movie.

Written and directed by Martyn Burke, the movie tells the story about the rise of rivals Apple and Microsoft. The film was adapted from the Paul Frieberger and Michael Swaine's novel 'Fire in the Valley.'

Following his death, stars took to Twitter to pay their respects to the Apple co-founder.

"We have all surfed on the wake of Steve Jobs ship. Now we must learn to sail, but we will never forget our skipper," Ashton Kutcher wrote.

Apple has set up an email address for consumers to share their thoughts: rememberingsteve@apple.com.
