Kaya Scodelario will skate into the lead role on Spinning Out, a new edgy drama series from creator Samantha Stratton. Stratton (Mr. Mercedes) and Lara Olsen (90210) serve as co-showrunners and executive producers.
Scodelario stars as Kat Baker, an up-and-coming, high-level single skater who’s about to turn in her skates after a disastrous fall took her off the competition track. When Kat seizes an opportunity to continue her career as a pair skater with a talented bad-boy partner, she risks exposing a fiercely kept secret that could unravel her entire life. On and off the ice, Kat and her new partner will face daunting odds, injury to body and soul, financial sacrifice, and even potential mental breakdown on their way to realizing their Olympic dream.
Kaya Scodelario’s credits include Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, The Maze Runner films, and Skins.
Tory Tunnell (Safehouse) and Joby Harold (Safehouse) also executive produce.
