Was Buck a movie first then the tv pilot or was it like Galactica where they had the TV pilot and hacked it up into a movie?
Like the Galactica pilot, it was shot as a TV pilot, but was released theatrically as a movie before the series premiered.
And then several new scenes were shot for the TV broadcast, many of them intended to help set up the series after it got the "green light." A few bits of the theatrical version were also cut from the final broadcast version... also like the Galactica pilot.
