The Starz historical time travel drama has always handled depictions of sexual assault responsively and sensitively. But in wake of the #MeToo movement, producers are being extra careful in depictions of sexual assault in Season 4. "We're sensitive to what's going on in this time right now, but we're also filming something that's a historical piece," says executive producer Maril Davis. "So we're trying to do that with both hats on." Speaking specifically of a Season 4 rape scene, which will be the first filmed amid the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, showrunner Ronald D. Moore tells The Hollywood Reporter: "We've always been guided by that principle. We have a history of it with the show itself (so the question becomes) how much of this material is in the show, when do we do it, when do we decide not to do it and why are we making that choice. You have to approach it on a case-by-case basis and this is obviously a big story point so it wasn't really an option not to do it. It's more a question of how you're going to do it and what it meant to that story in how you presented it."
