'So You Think You Can Dance' Winner to Co-Star in Fox's 'Delirium'
Fox's Delirium has added a So You Think You Can Dance winner to its cast.
Jeanine Mason, who won season five of the dance competition series, will co-star opposite Emma Roberts in the one-hour drama pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The show is based on Lauren Oliver's best-selling book trilogy about a world where love is deemed illegal and is able to 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.
Mason will play Hana Tate, Lena's best friend, who also faces the procedure that will cure her from the disease known as Deliria. Left to her own devices, Hana is a party animal and loves to hang out at underground dance clubs -- while she can still enjoy such Delirious pleasures. A flirty girl, it's revealed she ultimately is less rebellious than she appears.
The Secret Life of the American Teenager's Daren Kagasoff, Billy Campbell, Gregg Sulkin and Corey Reynolds co-star.
Karyn Usher will write and executive produce the 20th TV/Chernin Entertainment production, with Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Paul Mazur and Mitchell Kaplan.
Repped by ABA Talent and 3 Arts, Mason recurred as Cozette on ABC Family's Bunheads and had a role in MTV pilot Hot Mess. She next appears in Default.
