Streaming giant Netflix has given a 10-episode straight-to-series order to Spinning Out, an “edgy” drama set in the world of competitive figure skating.
The series, created by Samantha Stratton (Mr. Mercedes), will see Emma Roberts (American Horror Story) taking on the role of Kat Baker, an up-and-coming single figure skater who is taken out of competition after a disastrous fall.
She then seizes the opportunity to continue as a paired skater with a bad-boy partner; risking exposing a fiercely kept secret that could unravel her entire life, Kat and her 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.”
Roberts can currently be seen in American Horror Story: Apocalypse and recently starred in the rom-com Little Italy opposite Hayden Christensen.
