Netflix has reportedly put an upcoming Felicity Huffman movie on hold following news of her plea deal.

Huffman will plead guilty for participating in the college admissions scam.

Following the news, Netflix announced that Huffman's romantic comedy “Otherhood” will no longer premiere on the planned date of Apr. 26, and there is currently no release date for the flick.

Huffman agreed to take a plea deal for paying $15,000 to doctor her eldest daughter’s SATs so she’d get a better score. Huffman initially faced up to 20 years in prison but with her plea, federal prosecutors will recommend incarceration at the "low end" of the sentencing range, a $20,000 fine and 12 months of supervised release per CNN.

"I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions," she said in a statement.

"I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.

"My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty," she said in the statement.
