A bit of old news on this slow Sunday, but our old friend Ronald D. Moore is back for a visit.
It was reported a few days ago that the Battlestar Galactica reboot developer/writer/executive producer and Caprica creator/writer/executive producer will work on writing an adaptation of author Diana Gabaldon‘s popular Outlander book series for Sony Pictures TV, with plans of turning it into a new series.
Most of Moore’s work we’re familiar with resides in the realms of sci-fi, but the Outlander books give him an interesting mixture of genres to play with. They’re primarily considered to be romance novels, but they also involve a great deal of fantasy and historical fiction, as well.
The books follow a World War II British Army nurse named Claire who’s mysteriously transported back in time to 18th century Scotland, where she’s thought to be an English spy and is forced to marry a young warrior named Jamie to protect herself.
The series spans seven books so far, with an eighth currently on the way, and has sold over twenty million copies to date.
Are you interested in a TV series based on the Outlander series, and if so, which network do you want to see it land on?
