What came first????

Hi there!

I do not undertand what came first the tv show or the first movie?
On wiki the tv show was first, here on imdb it is the movie that was first.
How is it?



I think they filmed the movie first, realized it would make a good series on Showtime, and released both at the same time.

The plot from the series is that the weird relationship from the movie is messing him up and he needs some sort closure, thats why he asks for the letters.
Remember the girl in the movie was the one with the red shoes.
