Following the new photo that debuted yesterday, Starz has released the first trailer for Outlander, debuting sometime this summer. Sam Heughan stars as Jamie Fraser, who engages in an affair with Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), who is transported from 1945 to 1743. Take a look at the first footage from Ronald D. Moore's series, adapted from Diana Gabaldon's fantasy novel series.
In Outlander, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) strikes up a passionate affair with Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743. Armed with sheer grit and enduring strength, he is a strapping young Scottish clan lord with a complicated past and a disarming sense of humor. He is intelligent, principled, and, by 18th century standards, educated and worldly, with a tenderness and compassion that stands out in contrast to his contemporaries. A natural leader of men, he has no political ambitions or desire for battlefield glories. Instead, he wishes to remove the price on his head and return to his family's ancestral farm.
The series adaptation for Outlander will be written by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: The Next Generation). Ronald D. Moore and Jim Kohlberg are executive producers of Outlander, which is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.
