Fox has rejected a television series starring Emma Roberts, Entertainment Weekly reported Wednesday.

Titled "Delirium," EW described it as "an ambitious sci-fi novel adaptation starring Emma Roberts as a 17-year-old in a dystopian future where love is outlawed. Billy Campbell also starred. The pilot was based on the bestselling young adult novels by Lauren Oliver."

Expanding on the plot, said the series was to be "set in a world where love is deemed illegal and can be eradicated with a special procedure. With 95 days to go until her scheduled treatment, Lena Holoway (Roberts) does the unthinkable, she falls in love."

Also involved in the project, according to IMDb, was Karyn Usher, whose previous credits include co-executive producer of “Bones,” as well as a variety of production credits for “Prison Break.”

Roberts, 22, has starred in such vehicles as “Hotel for Dogs” and “Scream 4.”

She won the Young Artist Award in 2007 for Best Performance in a Feature Film – Supporting Young Actress for “Aquamarine.”

The same year, she was named the ShoWest Female Star of Tomorrow.

She is a daughter of Eric Roberts, and niece of Julia Roberts.
