Kaya Scodelairo strives for skating greatness in Spinning Out trailer
Netflix has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming skating drama series Spinning Out, starring Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner) as a competitive figure skater striving for greatness on the ice while fighting against her own fears and demons. The trailer can be viewed in the player below!
Spinning Out is a 10-episode series created by former competitive figure skater Samantha Statton (Mr. Mercedes). It will follow the story of Kat Baker (Scodelario), 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.
In addition to Scodelario, who replaced Emma Roberts (American Horror Story) in the lead role, the cast features Mad Men‘s January Jones, Evan Roderick (Arrow), Sarah Wight Olsen (American Made), Will Kemp (Reign), Kaitlyn Leeb (Shadowhunters), Amanda Zhou (October Faction) and Mitchell Edwards (Roxanne Roxanne).
Jones, who starred in AMC’s Mad Men from 2007-2015, has bounced around a number of series over the last few years, including Last Man on Earth. She was also recently seen in the series The Politician from Ryan Murphy.
Stratton and Lara Olsen (90210, Free Rein) will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers for the Netflix series. Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold will also executive produce for Safehouse Pictures. Spinning Out will premiere on the streaming service on New Year’s Day.
