Emma Roberts in Little Italy

Entertainment One; Lionsgate



"Spinning Out" is down a leading lady.

Emma Roberts has exited the upcoming Netflix series. The "Little Italy" star was set to play the central character, but her rep recently told Deadline that she has a scheduling conflict. The news comes just weeks after her role in the series was originally reported.

Without Roberts, Netflix plans to recast her part. The streamer told Deadline that the project will still move forward. The series will center on Kat Baker, a competitive figure skater trying to get her career back on track after an injury by switching to pairs skating. She'll have to contend with a variety of challenges, not least of which is getting along with her bad-boy partner.

While the show goes on without Roberts, the actress will be busy with her new gig. Deadline reports that it's another series, but so far, there has been no official word.

"Spinning Out" is slated to premiere in 2019 on Netflix.
