Who remembers Jodie from Daria?

 

Thankfully for us, the multi-talented Tracee Ellis Ross will produce and star in the new ‘Daria’ spin-off that is all about Ms. Jodie Landon.

 

For those of you who don’t remember, Jodie Landon was Daria’s African American best friend who was smart, beautiful, and just as sarcastic as the main character Daria.

 

Tracee Ellis Ross is usper excited to spearhead this project with MTV, in a recent statement she said:

 

“Being able to give voice to fresh, feminist and unexplored stories of young women excites me. Jodie, will spin-off from the cult classic Daria, and with the brilliant, sweet and sarcastic black girl magic that is Jodie Landon, we will feature a diverse cast, comprised mainly of unapologetically smart and ambitious young female characters who are vulnerable and flawed and interesting and funny.”
