Delirium Found It's Alex!

Fans can say that Delirium is one of the most anticipated tv shows now in production due to it's pretty big fan base and popularity of the book series. And now, after casting news released that Emma Roberts would be playing the lead of Lena.

Speculations have been running around Twitter all week as to who would be playing love interest Alex Sheathes and it looks like all the buzz has finally been settled.

Secret Life of the American Teenager actor Daren Kagasoff will be leading the pilot alongside Emma Roberts as they adapt this series into what I hope is a successful tv franchise much like Pretty Little Liars or The Vampire Diaries.

It's no news that Young Adult books have been making waves and creating great tv shows recently, especially with the most recent show The Carries Diaries becoming even more popular with the next generation of Sex and the City viewers. Another book-to-tv adaptation everyone has been anticipating is The Selection by Kiera Cass.

With the popularity and success of YA in TV as of late, I can't wait to see how Delirium bodes on the screen. I also can't wait to seewhich station picks it up. Personally, I'm hoping for The CW since they've done so well in the past but with the cancellation of The Secret Circle (which I loved), it's a tough playing field.

What do you guys think? Do you like Daren as Alex? Also, what are your thoughts on Delirium as a TV show? Are you excited to see this world come to life?

    I'm very curious to see how Delirium does as a TV show. I hope that it is successful, but it is often hard to predict these things.
