Emma Roberts is hitting the ice for a new series coming soon to Netflix!
According to TV Line, American Horror Story alumn Emma Roberts has found her next small screen project in an upcoming Netflix original called Spinning Out.
The new Netflix original series is set to be comprised of 10 episodes and is being billed as an “edgy” ice skating drama that focuses on the high pressure world of figure skating.
Roberts will play an up-and-coming high-level single skater named Kat Baker who is about to call it quits after a disastrous fall forces her out of the competition track. Things take a turn, however, when Kat decides to continue her career as a pair skater with a talented male partner who’s described as a “bad-boy” skater.
She’ll have to be careful, though — pairing up with a partner means Kat risks exposing a well-kept secret that could unravel her entire life.
It sounds as though there’s lots of drama in store for Kat and her new partner. According to the official synopsis for the show, “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.”
Currently, there’s no word on who will be hitting the ice alongside Roberts as Kat’s bad-boy ice skating partner, but we’ll be curious to see who they tap to fill the role.
Spinning Out was created by Samatha Stratton, whose previous credits include Mr. Mercedes. She’ll serve as co-show runner and executive producer alongside Reign and 90210 alum Lara Olsen. Others on board to executive produce on the new drama include Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold.
There’s no word yet on when Netflix plans to release the new drama.
