We open to: a white office, interior, Ronald D. Moore (executive producer) standing before a table set in the centre of the room. Seated at the table are Maril Davis (executive producer), Diana Gabaldon (consultant), Terry Dresbach (costume designer), Matthew B. Roberts (co-executive producer), Ira Behr (executive producer), and three hired writers (#1, #2, #3). Otherwise bare, the walls are adorned with one Battlestar Galactica poster and one framed head shot of Captain James T. Kirk.
Ron: Welcome, everyone, to the first of many Outlander production meetings. As you all know, season one’s been green lit - and now it’s time to get to work.
Ron: So, we’ve all read the books …
Ron: Well, most of us have read the books …
Ron: Ok, well, four of you. Four of you have read the books at least once.
