Ronald D Moore Brings Outlander to Starz in 2014

200px-Outlander_cover_2001_paperback_editionThe Outlander fantasy series is coming to Starz in 2014, under the auspice of Ronald D. Moore, creator of the rebooted Battlestar Galactica.  The series has been picked up for 16 episodes.

Moore recently received a 13 episode order for Helix, a TV series about a team of scientists in the arctic fighting a virus, which he will be executive producing for SyFy.  It seems he will have more of a hand in Outlander, which he will both produce and write.

The Outlander novels follow a combat nurse named Claire Beauchamp, who is transported from her life in 1945 back to 1743 Scotland, where she finds romance, and intrigue, and stuff.
