Arrow‘s Evan Roderick has been cast opposite Kaya Scodelario in Spinning Out, Netflix’s upcoming drama series set in the world of competitive figure skating.
Created by Samantha Stratton (Mr. Mercedes), a former competitive figure skater herself, Spinning Out centers on 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 talented bad-boy partner Justin (Roderick), she risks exposing a fiercely kept secret that could unravel her entire life. On and off the ice, Kat and Justin will face daunting odds, injury to body and soul, financial sacrifice, and even potential mental breakdown on their way to realizing their Olympic dream. Justin’s wild party-boy antics have long been overlooked due to his Olympic-level skating abilities. When he teams up with Kat, he finds he has finally met his match on and off the ice.
In addition to Scodelario, Roderick joins previously cast Willow Shields.
Stratton and Lara Olsen executive produce and serve as co-showrunners on the series. Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold executive produce via Safehouse Pictures. The company’s Matt Schwartz serves as co-executive producer.
Roderick is best known for playing Nick Anastas on The CW’s hit drama series Arrow. He has also appeared in guest roles on Netflix’s Project Mc2 and ABC’s When We Rise, among others. Roderick is repped by The Characters Talent Agency in Vancouver and Capstone Management.
