Emma Roberts has pulled out of Netflix’s skating drama.
The 27-year-old actress has stepped down from the leading role in the upcoming drama series Skating Out. She had been set to play the lead on a series set in the world of competitive figure skating
The announcement comes just weeks after Roberts signed on. 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.
Netflix put in an order for 10 episodes earlier this month.
Netflix is keeping on with the show and is searching for a new lead.
