Oh, absolutely. The Salkinds were involved, so naturally they'd stick with what they'd already done...
Except the movie had Jonathan die when he did and had Clark first appear as SuperMAN, with nobody having ever seen the costume before, let alone a person who could fly.
I'd say the show was one or two ticks away on the multiverse spectrum. Close, but not exactly the same.
The Superboy series had its own multiverse. It's very possible for the donner movies to take place in that multiverse.
