TNT will pay homage to Steve Jobs tonight with two special presentations (8/7c and 10/9c) of the 1999 original TV movie “Pirates of Silicon Valley.”

The Emmy-nominated telepic stars Noah Wyle as Jobs (a role he later reprised in front of the Apple co-founder), Anthony Michael Hall as Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and Joey Slotnick as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. The film chronicles the race between technological rivals Apple Computers and Microsoft from the early dorm-room days to subsequent late boardroom nights.

Jobs’ seven-year battle with pancreatic cancer ended Wednesday. He was 56.
