Jeanine Mason, who won season five, joins Emma Roberts and Daren Kagasoff in the hourlong drama pilot.
Fox’s Delirium has added a So You Think You Can Dancewinner 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 DarenKagasoff, Billy Campbell, Gregg Sulkin andCorey Reynolds co-star.
Karyn Usher will write and executive produce the20th TV/Chernin Entertainment production, withPeter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Paul Mazurand Mitchell Kaplan.
Repped by ABA Talent and 3 Arts, Mason recurred asCozette on ABC Family’sBunheads and had a role in MTV pilot Hot Mess. She next appears in Default.

Like herLes Misnamesake, Mason’s character is practically perfect in every way — she speaks four languages, she’s immediately popular, and most importantly, she really knows her way around a dance studio. Something tells us snooty Sasha might not be Cozette’s biggest fan.
