Kick up your kilts, Outlander fans: Your dreams have finally come true. Battlestar Galactica executive producer Ronald D. Moore is set to bring the wildly popular fantasy novels by Diana Gabaldon (more than 20 million copies sold!) to life. The series, which debuts on Starz in 2014, follows a World War II English combat nurse, Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 Scotland, finding herself smack in the middle of England's bloody crackdown on the tough, proud Highland clans.
As a bewildered Claire tries to adjust to her new reality, sparks fly with a young, chivalrous Highlander, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). "He teaches Claire how she fits into this period," Heughan says. "But she's got this modern way of thinking. She's independent and has her own ideas, so they clash."
