Fox has found the lead for its drama pilot "Delirium," while Robin Williams is getting a co-star for his CBS comedy. NBC has also found the lead for its comedy "About a Boy."

Emma Roberts will star in "Delirium," an adaptation of Lauren Oliver's young-adult novels about a world where love is treated as a disease that's "cured" by removing part of people's brains. Roberts will play Lena, who's a couple months short of her operation when she falls in love.

"Delirium," adapted by Karyn Usher ("Bones," "Prison Break") will be the first prime-time series for Roberts (Julia Roberts' niece), who starred on the Nickelodeon series "Unfabulous" from 2004-07.

The CBS comedy "The Crazy Ones," starring Williams and created by David E. Kelley, has signed James Wolk to co-star. The show centers on the relationship between Williams' character and his daughter (who's yet to be cast), who run an ad agency. »
