Pilot Scoop: Emma Roberts Lands Lead Role in Fox's Delirium

Emma Roberts is venturing back to the small screen in a big way, signing on to play the lead role in Fox’s drama pilot Delirium, TVLine has learned.

Based on the bestselling young adult novels by Lauren Oliver, Delirium is set in world where love is deemed illegal and is able to be eradicated with a special procedure. But with 95 days to go until her scheduled treatment, defiant teen Lena Holoway (Roberts) does the unthinkable and falls in love.

Karyn Usher (Prison Break) penned the script and will serve as an EP alongside Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope.

After hitting it big with Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous, Roberts went on to star in films such as Nancy Drew, Hotel For Dogs and Scream 4. She recently wrapped a role in We’re the Millers opposite Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudekis.

I actually liked the Delerium books!
The romance in them was soooo good. Better than most of these YA books. The story itself tho...lol

She's such a crappy actress.

They're making a show out of this? I just finished the two books oddly enough and they were good, hopefully they'll do the show at least as good as the books were.
