Emma RobertsThe dystopia is nigh!

Actress Emma Roberts heralded the start of production today on the small-screen adaptation of Lauren Oliver's 2011 young-adult novel "Delirium." Set in an alternate reality where love is considered a disease, the series follows teen Lena Haloway (Emma) as she faces the surgery that will eradicate her ability to have all the feels.

The Fox pilot has cast a slew of familiar faces in pivotal roles, including Billy Campbell as Thomas Fineman, Gregg Sulkin as Julian Fineman, Daren Kagasoff as Alex Sheathes, Jeanine Mason as Hana Tate and Michael Michele as Senator Hargrove.

If picked up to series, "Delirium" will appear on the network's 2013-14 slate.
