Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945, who while on a second honeymoon in Scotland, touches standing stones and is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world and her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
The Outlander series spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure into one epic tale. From Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: The Next Generation) the series, adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling books, is set to premiere in 2014.
