The city is chock-full of creative types and even more suits than usual this week, as many of the networks present their 2015-2016 slate of programming during the annual Upfronts. I was lucky enough to snag some time with Ron Moore, executive producer and writer of Outlander, who’s in town to talk up Starz’s breakout hit series. Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the show is based on Diana Gabaldon’s beloved best-selling (25 million copies and counting) eight book odyssey. The books spin an epic time-traveling tale of World War II nurse Claire (Caitriona Balfe) who is transported to 18th century Scotland and falls in love with Jamie (Sam Heughan).
