The Fox Network has ordered a pilot based on Lauren Oliver’s popular Delirium trilogy, just ahead of the March 5 release of book three, Requiem (Harper). Writer/executive producer Karyn Usher (Prison Break) wrote the pilot that was approved, and The Mazur Kaplan Company (as in Mitchell Kaplan of Books & Books) is executive producing along with Chernin Entertainment and Twentieth Television.
In addition to soon being able to watch Delirium on the small screen, fans of Oliver's work will get a bonus short story, "Alex," if they buy a copy ofthe first printing of Requiem. Delirium Stories, originally published as digital novellas, will also be released in paperback on March 5, as will an e-book that focuses on the leader of a rebel group in the Wilds, Raven. An original digital story about Lena's best friend, Hana, came out last February.
