Watch Clips From Emma Roberts' Failed TV Pilot 'Delirium'

Emma Roberts may have been busy casting spells on "American Horror Story: Coven" this past Fall, but she almost traded a witchy school in New Orleans for a loveless future.

Roberts starred in a pilot for the series "Delirium" based on a young adult novel about a dystopian future (original!) where being in love is against the law (ugh). Roberts played the part of Lena, a teenage girl who does the unthinkable and, yup, falls in love.

Fox passed on the pilot in favor of "Sleepy Hollow" and "Almost Human" (you're welcome, TV viewers), but luckily(?) some scenes from the pilot have leaked online.

Watch the six-minute montage of the teenage drama that makes The CW's worst look like an awesome artistic achievement.
