Watch: A Woman Has 'Fallen Through Time' in the First Teaser for Starz's Historical Fantasy 'Outlander'

Starz is currently in production for “Outlander,” the new drama from “Battlestar Galactica” showrunner Ronald D. Moore, adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s novel series of the same name. “Outlander” is an adventure and romance in which a World War II-era nurse named Claire (Caitriona Balfe) finds she has “fallen through time,” as she puts it in the video below, to 18th century Scotland, where she meets and becomes involved with Jamie (Sam Heughan).
