Remember when Lauren Oliver‘s Delirium was meant to become a TV series, starring Emma Roberts, Gregg Sulkin and Daren Kagasoff, but then they decided to nix it? Yeah, that was a bummer. (Guess it’s all for the best, though, considering Emma snagged a role on American Horror Story: Coven with boyfriend-turned-fiance Evan Peters, but we digress.) Fortunately, footage from the never-before-seen pilot has made its way onto the Internet, so at least we can get a sense of what it would’ve been like.
This got us to thinking about all the other books that got the go-ahead for a teen television series (except all of the ones mentioned below went into at least a few episodes of production). And we’re rating ten of them on a win-fail basis…
It’s, like, the #1 show geared toward teens on TV right now. Obvious win.
Darn shame, too — we were dying to know why Thayer was such a backstabber.
Between the hot men and bajillion doppelgangers,
we expect plenty more from Nina Dobrev and the crew in the years to come.
One season. ONE. That’s all the Lucy Hale show got.
Thankfully, PLL came along for her and all was not lost.
Five years worth of dramz. Safe to say it was a win.
Not to be rude, but *yawn*.
And it’s all on Netflix!
The show was moved to the (dreaded) Friday slot,
but we’re holding out hope that Carrie Bradshaw will make it through.
Well, at least we were introduced to Phoebe Tonkin.
We’re withholding judgment (for now) until the series premieres.
The pilot was interesting, though.
