Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner) and Willow Shields (The Hunger Games) are set to star in new drama series Spinning Out on Netflix.
Scodelario stars as 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.
Shields will play Kat Baker’s younger sister Serena. While Serena lacks her sister’s natural grace on the ice, she makes up for it with discipline and fierce determination. Her complicated relationship with her sister is made up of equal parts loyalty and competition.
The series has been handed a 10 episode first season by Netflix. Spinning Out was created by Samantha Stratton, who will serve as an executive producer and co-showrunner alongside Lara Olsen.
