From Emmy Magazine:

Based on the best-selling series of novels by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander has become the kind of tent-pole project that television executives dream about, thanks in no small part to lush locales and the hotter-than-hot chemistry between stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan.

“When we set out to do this series, our first goal for ourselves was to do no harm,” says Starz CEO Chris Albrecht, referring to Gabaldon’s literary legacy. “We wanted to make sure that the fans of the books felt we were doing justice to the story.”

Executive producer and showrunner Ronald Moore (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Battlestar Galactica) shared that concern.

There was a lot at stake. Over the past two-plus decades, the books have sold more than 20 million copies and spawned tens of millions of fervent, mostly female fans around the globe. “When was the last time you completely lost your heart to a book?” enthuses one fan. Another gushes, “I am obsessed by Jamie and Claire.”
