Spinning Out: Willow Shields Joins Cast For Netflix Drama Series


Deadline is reporting that Willow Shields has been cast to star opposite Kaya Scodelario in Netflix figure skating drama series Spinning Out.

 

Spinning Out focuses on 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 realising their Olympic dream.

 

The report states that Willow Shields (whose credits include The Hunger Games franchise and Into The Rainbow) will be playing the role of 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 is created by Samantha Stratton (a former competitive figure skater) and will serve as an executive producer on the series, as well as serve as co-showrunner alongside Lara Olsen. Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold will serve as executive producers on the project under the Safehouse Pictures banner, Matt Schwartz of Safehouse will serve as co-executive producer.
