The new series from Battlestar Galactica executive producer Ronald D. Moore will feature a World War II combat nurse swept back in time to 1743.
Starz has released the full opening sequence and title song of their upcoming series Outlander, set to premier on Aug. 9 at 9 p.m. The series, centered around combat nurse Claire Randall and her mysterious teleportation from 1945 to the Scottish Highlands of 1743, reunites members of the Battlestar Galactica creative team, namely executive producer Ronald D. Moore and composer Bear McCreary.
McCreary’s work can be heard in the intro’s opening title track, “Skye Boat Song.” The intro was first shown to fans at the Comic-Con world premier screening of Outlander on Friday night. Among the show’s stars are Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies. The new show is based on a best-selling book series by Diana Gabaldon.
