Weeks after signing on to star in Netflix figure skating drama Spinning Out, Emma Roberts is dropping out of the project.

Sources say the actress has exited the series due to a scheduling conflict with another show. Roberts had been set to play the lead, Kat Baker, on the drama set in the world of competitive figure skating.

Spinning Out, from Samantha Stratton (Mr. Mercedes) and Lara Olsen (90210), was given a 10-episode, straight-to-series order in early October. The project is said to be moving forward with another actor soon to be cast in the starring role. Netflix declined to comment.

Roberts currently can be seen on FX's American Horror Story, where she has been a regular castmember in the Ryan Murphy anthology. Her credits also include Scream Queens, Who We Are Now, In a Relationship, Nerve and We're the Millers. She next will appear in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Paradise Hills.

Deadline first broke the news of Roberts' exit.
