The STARZ are Lining up for Outlander Fans…

I have never been more reassured about Outlander the TV series honoring the books than after I read this:

“We’re at pains to really follow the books,” he [Ron Moore] says to assure concerned readers. “One of the great things was Starz said to us early on was, ‘We love the books, we think they are great so let’s make the [show] for the people who love the books. Let’s make it for the fans of the books first and trust that anyone who doesn’t know the material will get swept along in the story like everyone else does.’ Nobody ever says that,” Moore laughs. “Typically studios and networks just say, ‘Yeah, we don’t really care about the book. We bought it for the cover or whatever…’ and then dispense with it very early on [in the process]. This was the rare time when everybody said this is great material and we like the story and these characters so let’s try to get as close to the books as possible in the show and that’s what we are doing.” ~ Ron Moore, via blastr.com

So the powers-that-be at Starz actually love the books too, AND, let me get this straight, care about the fans???

There is a god in heaven!

Recently My Outlander Purgatory shared this Trailer of the Starz original series, “The White Queen;” asking us, “Wondering what STARZ can do?”

I’m adding one of my personal favorites, a trailer from another Starz original series, “Spartacus, Blood and Sand,” featuring Andy Whitfield, one of my early picks to play Jamie…

Roman:  “How many men would you kill to hold your wife again?”

Spartacus:  “I would kill them ALL…”

RIP Andy…♥

    I sincerely hope that they do follow the books. I’ve have read and re-read them all countless times. It would really be sad if they didn’t follow them.
