Holy Crap on a Cracker!  
Starz has closed a deal to develop Outlander, a drama series based on Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling fantasy/romance/adventure series of books. Battlestar Galactica developer/executive producer Ron Moore will write the series adaptation, with Jim Kohlberg’s Story Mining and Supply Co producing. Sony Pictures TV is behind the project after acquiring rights to the books in the summer and attaching Moore, who is under an overall deal at the studio, to develop and write a series targeted for cable networks.

I'm trying not to get too excited as you never know if something like this will fall through and not happen but if it doesn't. WHEN?

I'm excited and scared all at the same time.

Wow, cool!

So uh, is that Ron Moore, the guy who produced BSG? If it isn't, it must be his evil (good?) twin.

omg, one of the minds behind BSG working on Outlander (or as I call it, Cross Stitch)?! so amazing, and can't wait to see what happens. (even if other people have tried and failed to get the adaption through, fingers crossed and thumbs held, this time it will work!)

See I totally have a grain of hope this time because it is Sony and Ron Moore. That is huge! Now, I am concerned that if it is on Starz... well I don't have that channel but I'll figure it out. Heck I would so buy that show.

Oh if Ron Moore is doing it, it's going to be epic! Really hope it gets made!

I know right! I'm so excited because it seemed more real learning about Moore's involvement a couple months ago but now that Starz is involved, I feel like it is going to happen. *fingers crossed*
