deliriumIn 2013, Fox passed on the pilot for DELIRIUM, based on the popular Lauren Oliver book trilogy, and as with most passed over pilots, the potential series went (seemingly) quietly into the night.

Comments Off on DELIRIUM Pilot to Appear on Hulu’s WIGS Channel

DELIRIUM, the passed-over Fox pilot from 2013 that was based on Lauren Oliver’s “Delirium” book trilogy, is getting a new life: WIGS will put it up on their Hulu channel on June 20th for a limited window.

In DELIRIUM, love is considered a disease and the risk of it can be eliminated by a procedure. Unfortunately for Lena (played by Emma Roberts), she falls in love before she can be “fixed.”

The pilot stars Roberts, Billy Campbell, and Gregg Sulkin, while the script was written by former BONES/PRISON BREAK scribe Karyn Usher.
