Remember that potential TV adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series we mentioned in July? Well, according to Hollywood news site Deadline, it's been picked up by Starz for 16 episodes, with production set to begin in October in Scotland!
The show, which assumably will follow time-traveling Sassenach Claire Randall and Scottish warrior Jamie Fraser as they meet and fall in love, is being developed by Ronald D. Moore, the mind behind Battlestar Galactica 2003 and the female Starbuck we know and love.
We'll share more news as we get it, but in the meantime, what say you? Think you'll watch? We've talked about fantasy casting Outlander before, but any guesses on who might get cast as Jamie and Claire for this series?
ETA 6/25/13: It's officially official! Read the press release on Deadline.com.
