‘I Seem To Have Fallen Through Time!!’ The First Trailer For Starz’ Sci-Fi Drama OUTLANDER, From BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Mastermind Ron Moore!!
Starz chief Chris Albrect said today he’d be shocked if Starz didn’t order a second second season of “Outlander.”
It’s based on Diana Galbaldon’s novels about a World War II combat nurse who finds herself unexpectedly transported to the Scottish Highlands of 1743, where she’s forced to marry a fierce and gallant Scottish warrior.
In April showrunner Ron Moore recruited Ira Steven Behr, his old boss at “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” to shore up the writers’ room for the not-yet-greenlit “Outlander” series. Behr’s other credits include “The 4400,” “Alphas,” “Dark Angel” and the 2002 version of “The Twilight Zone.”
Other writers working on the project include Toni Graphia (who worked with Moore on “Battlestar Galactica,” “Roswell,” and “Carnivale”), Matthew Roberts (who worked with Moore on “Caprica”) and Anne Kenney (“L.A. Law,” “Greek,” “Switched At Birth”).
Moore, undaunted by his participation in stalled TV projects as “Dragonriders of Pern,” “Virtuality,” “17th Precinct,” “The McCulloch” and “The Wild Wild West,” began pitching “Outlander” to an array of channels in the summer of 2012.
Starz greenlit "Outlander" to series last June.
I suspect it will prove far more entertaining than Moore’s flaccid new Syfy seris “Helix.”
Starz launches "Outlander" it this summer.
