TRACEE ELLIS ROSS TO STAR AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCE “DARIA” SPINOFF
Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross is set to star in and executive produce an adult animated comedy, Jodie, based on a character from MTV’s show, Daria. It will be centered around fan favorite and Daria’s good friend Jodie Landon (voiced by Ross), an African American character from the original series that ran from 1997-2002 and credited with helping to shape a generation of women.
It will follow Jodie as she comes into her own and enters the workplace in her first job in tech after she graduates from college. Other former students of Lawndale High will also appear.
