Netflix released the first trailer for its upcoming figure-skating drama “Spinning Out” on Tuesday, and everybody’s mad.
Led by “The Maze Runner” alum Kaya Scodelario, the series centers on Kat Baker, a high-level figure skater whose career is derailed after a disastrous fall. In an effort to stay in competition, she teams up with bad-boy pairs skater, Justin Davis (Evan Roderick), and risks exposing a fiercely kept secret that has the potential to unravel her entire life.
And judging by the amount of angry glaring between the two in the trailer, it does not go smoothly.
“I’m used to skating alone. I need time to adjust, ” Kat tells her new partner.
The 10-episode series is set to debut on New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, 2020. January Jones, Willow Shields, Amanda Zhou, Sarah Wright Olsen and Svetlana Efremova also star.
Two-time Olympian and NBC skating analyst Johnny Weir — who skated pairs in real life early in his career — appears as the main competition for protagonist skating duo Kat and Justin.
But Weir isn’t the only competition. “I could whack her knee with a bat, or is that too ’90s?” Zhou’s character asks Kat of an unknown female rival, referencing the infamous attack on Nancy Kerrigan orchestrated by the husband of competitor Tonya Harding back in 1994.
Samantha Stratton (“Mr. Mercedes”) is creator and showrunner, executive producing alongside co-showrunner Lara Olsen. Tory Tunnell (“Safehouse”) and Joby Harold (“Safehouse”) also executive produce.
