Brusimm TV NewsIf you’re a fan of Ronald D. Moore‘s work, and/or a fan of the Outlander book series from Diana Gabaldon, you are definitely in luck!

Sony Pictures TV bought the rites to the book series and they’ve tapped Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica reboot) to develop the potential TV series.

The Outlander book series is about a woman named Claire, who, living in 1945, finds herself teleported back to 1743 Scottish Highlands. In this new time and due to circumstances beyond her control, Claire finds herself forced to marry a man named Jamie.

And this relationship becomes a true kind of love that forces her to face off between her own fidelity and desire.

The Outlander book series has sold 20 million copies and has quite the following of true believers.

Moore has been the scribe power behind Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Roswell, HBO’s Carnivale and Battlestar Galactica. On the silver screen he’s scribed Star Trek movies First Contact and Generations, Mission Impossible II and The Plan.

Though this story line isn’t quite up my alley, neither was Carnivale and I found myself caught up in that series. So we’ll see how it works out, with Ronald D. Moore behind the Outlander adaptation.
