Ronald D. Moore, best known as the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series showrunner, has apparently gotten the green light for a new series on Starz. Deadline reports that Moore is developing an adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander novels, a currently seven-book series of time-travel romance novels. The Outlander series follows ex-army nurse Claire Beauchamp Randall after she is mysteriously transported from World War II-era Britain to 18th-century Scotland and must navigate the complicated politics of an unfamiliar world with Jamie Fraser, a man she is initially forced to marry but quickly comes to love.
