There has been such a fantastic trend of YA books being adapted into both film & TV series and now we can add “web exclusives” to the list. The series Delirium by Lauren Oliver has been adapted into a single episode exclusively on Hulu! (Yes, you read that right, ONE episode).
The pilot episode was released just last week and I was eager to watch. For the first time I didn’t do a thorough background check or make any assumptions, I just went cold turkey and took the plunge. And I wasn’t disappointed, in 42 minutes was hooked. I mean who doesn’t love Emma Michaels and Daren Kagasoff.
This pilot episode will only be available (for free) for 30 days on Hulu. #ticktock. Currently, there are no plans to continue the series; they just want us to all “enjoy” a little piece of Delirium… That’s crap man! What you did was infect me with Amor Deliria Nervosa! You can’t just taunt YA book fiends with a little dystopian eye candy and think everything will be okay in the morning. We have addictive personalities (well, at least I do), we get way too invested in our characters and frankly we just like to have it all.
Dear Wigs & Hulu,
Get your act together.
