Starring Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies the historical epic series Outlander features political intrigue, bloody battles and steamy romance.
More4, from the Channel 4 corporation, has confirmed the broadcaster has acquired the drama series from Sony Pictures Television.
The first series, consisting of sixteen episodes, will begin airing later this month on More4. The Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated series, which has garnered fans worldwide as well as a raft of awards, including BAFTA Scotland and Critics Choice awards, follows the story of Claire Randall (Balfe), a married WW11 combat nurse from 1945 who mysteriously falls back in time to 1743 where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world and her life is threatened.
When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
