Emma Roberts has spun off the ice.
Just weeks after she joined Netflix’s upcoming skating drama, Roberts has stepped down from the leading role.
The 27-year-old actress was set to star in Skating Out set in the world of competitive figure skating. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress has exited the series due to a scheduling conflict with another show.
Spinning Out follows 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.
The series was created by Samantha Stratton, who will serve as an executive producer and co-showrunner alongside Lara Olsen.
Netflix is currently looking for its new lead skater.
