Emma Roberts is on her way back to the small screen.

The actress will play the lead in the Fox pilot Delirium, which is based on a series of young adult novels penned by Lauren Oliver.

The story takes place in a future where love is both illegal and erased via a unique procedure. But with three months to go before her treatment, Roberts' Lena falls for a dreamy young man.
