Starz has released the first trailer and three new photos for Outlander, set to debut sometime this summer on the cable network. Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) created this upcoming series, based on Diana Gabaldon's beloved novels, which centers on Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a nurse who is mysteriously transported from 1945 to 1743, where she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a Scottish soldier whom she quickly falls for. Take a look at the first footage and images, and stay tuned to find out when this series will debut on Starz.
The Outlander series spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure in one epic tale. The series, adapted from Diana Gabaldon's international best-selling books by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: The Next Generation), is currently filming on location in Scotland and is set to premiere on Starz this Summer. It follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743. Upon her arrival, she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. But when she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited. Now, Claire's heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
