Emma Roberts to Star in Delirium TV Show

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


Emma Roberts will star in “Delirium,” the FOX TV pilot based on the young adult novels about an alternate America where love is treated as a disease.

The books, by Lauren Oliver, take place in a version of our world in which a totalitarian government mandates that citizens be surgically “cured” of love at 18 years old.

Roberts will portray a teenage girl named Lena, who is just months away from her own “cure” when she falls in love with a wilderness-dwelling, uncured young man.

Drama ensues.

Roberts has television roots, having starred on “Unfabulous” before launching a film career with movies like Nancy Drew, Hotel for Dogs and Scream 4.
