First Trailer: Starz's "Outlander"

Starz has released the first trailer for Ron Moore's epic series "Outlander" which debuts sometime this Summer. Based on Diana Gabaldon's best-selling books, the story revolves around a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 and thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened.

Moore revealed at the show's TCA presentation on Friday that the plan is to do as loyal an adaptation as possible: "My job is to interpret and develop it for another audience. My role is not reinventing but adapting it. There is an audience for it and a dedicated fan base who have read these for years. I take that obligation seriously. I want to give them their story, but I have to translate it and tell a story."
