She’s making her return to the small screen, and Emma Roberts has a fabulous new gig as the lead role on FOX’s new drama “Delirium.”

Based on a book trilogy by author Lauren Oliver, the show will deal with life in a world where love is deemed illegal and is able to be eradicated with a special procedure.

Emma’s character faces a serious dilemma when she falls in love mere months prior to undergoing the treatment herself, causing plenty of drama.

Prior to this project, Emma was chiefly involved in feature films after starring in the Nickelodeon teen series “Unfabulous.”
