PBS is set to air a documentary, titled "One Last Thing," on the life of late Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 10 p.m.

The film will include interviews with colleagues, friends and others who knew the technological entrepreneur whom many are calling one of the greatest innovators of our time, and offer a deeper look into his rise to success. The documentary will also explore Jobs' often controlling, demanding disposition that sometimes made him difficult to work with, as well as the influences behind his innovations and what drove him to achieve.

Among those interviewed include Apple co-founders Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, Ross Perot, who invested in Jobs' NeXT Computer, Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal who interviewed Jobs on a consistent basis and will.i.am, frontman and producer for The Black Eyed Peas whose song, "I Gotta Feeling," ranks as the most downloaded iTunes song ever.

"From the vast complexity of time and space to the genius of a man who put technology in the palm of our hands, these extraordinary programs explore the work of two visionaries in science and technology," said John F. Wilson, senior vice president & chief TV programming executive, in a statement for PBS.

Jobs passed away Oct. 5 at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. During his lifetime, he revolutionized the digital world with products such as the iPod, iPhone, iPad, and the online iTunes store. He successfully marketed the first personalized computer and turned Pixar into a billion dollar conglomerate that produced box-office hits such as "Finding Nemo," "Toy Story" and "Monsters Inc."

The title of the documentary comes from a catchphrase Jobs would say after the end of many Apple product launches. Just when the audience would think the presentation had ended, Jobs would say, "Oh, one more thing," and unveil his latest technological design.
