Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of Spinning Out, a new edgy drama series from creator Samantha Stratton starring Emma Roberts. Stratton (Mr. Mercedes) and Lara Olsen (90210) serve as co-showrunners and executive producers.
Emma Roberts plays 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.
Tory Tunnell (Safehouse) and Joby Harold (Safehouse) also executive produce.
Roberts recently completed production on Paradise Hills, the directorial debut of Spanish helmer Alice Waddington. Roberts is currently starring in Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Apocalypse on FX. Her other recent credits include Who We Are Now, In a Relationship, Nerve, and We’re The Millers.
