Outlander to be a TV Series!!!!!

In Diana Gabaldon's own words on Twitter:

"Yes! Final contracts aren’t yet signed, but we do have a deal with Sony Pictures for development of a cable-TV (HBO/Showtime etc) series."

Joanne Adds:
This is wonderful news for all Outlander fans! Not a movie, but a series to adequately have the space and time to develop the story and characters of the Outlander books. Now let's hope it is a FAITHFUL adaptation!!!

I've never read the OUTLANDER books, just never could get into them. But I like the idea of a series anyway.

I might inch into OULTANDER World through the series. :)
