‘Outlander’ Arrives on the Sony Lot, Diana Gabaldon’s Exciting News

The day started off pretty great with Sony exec Chris Parnell sharing this photo of the massive Outlander poster on the Sony lot in LA.

Story Mining Company also shared a photo of a banner on the Sony lot.

So here is what we get from her tweets:
1) Score for opening credits is done. Bear McCreary composes the track as well as music for the series.
2) Opening credits themselves are done. I think I am anxious to see the opening credits more than the first episode as a whole. They can be so iconic like Game of Thrones or Lost (although there is not much to that one).
3) First episode done!
4) They are screening the episode for potential buyers. I remember my conversation with the awesome Robyn Harney who said a lot of places won’t buy until they can see an episode. So hopefully this will speed the process along for those countries still waiting.

    We trended in the top spot in the US, the Netherlands, Italy and France. Trended 6th in the UK, 5th in Australia, 3rd in New Zealand and Sweden and…trended 2nd WORLDWIDE!!! What an awesome showing! The fact that this all hit just as Outlander’s first episode was being screened and was announced to everyone (including Ron and DG) was certainly icing on the cake. We accomplished what we set out to do and now it’s in the hands of Sony and the cable/satellite executives!
