And one of the names linked to the impressive line-up of people making it happen was author Diana Gabaldon, who is set to serve as a consulting producer. Except there''s one not-so-small issue.

Because Starz has officially announced it on Twitter and Facebook, it seems like everyone is interested in it.
BPMatthew Roberts will play in the prequel as well as shooting Roberts, including Maril Davis and Ronald D. Moore (with Story Mining & Supply Company also executive producing). With the writers'' room open and rolling, the series will follow Jamie Fraser''s (Sam Heughan) parents'' love story.
The "Outlander" series from season to season has captivated fans around the globe, according to the president of STARZ. If you want to see a reason why this vibrant world is so vibrant, then look no further than the worldwide streaming numbers.
