Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling genre-bending Outlander series is coming to television. Starz entertainment and sony Pictures Television are partnering to produce the show, with an order for 16 episodes. Outlander will begin shooting in Scotland this fall and is being planned for a 2014 premiere. The adaptation is being written by Peabody Award winner Ronald D. Moore, of Battlestar Galactica fame, who will also be an executive producer.
The series follows married combat nurse Claire Randall, who is ‘mysteriously swept back in time to 1743’ from 1945 and thrown into a world where her life is threatened – which leads to her marriage to Jamie Fraser which, in turn, tears her heart between two loves in two radically different times.
