DEVELOPMENT HISTORY:
6/21/18 - 8/5/20
STATUS:
currently in development (2020-2021 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE:
ordered to series
DESCRIPTION:
(from Comedy Central's press release, June 2020) Peabody(R), Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) winning actress Tracee Ellis is coming to Comedy Central with "Jodie," a spinoff of MTV's iconic "Daria" franchise from creator and head writer Grace Edwards. Edwards previously served as writer/co-producer for the critically-acclaimed HBO series "Insecure." Additional credits include multiple seasons on the Emmy-nominated comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Inside Amy Schumer." Ellis Ross voices the main character and serve as executive producer, which is based on Jodie Landon, Daria's friend at the fictional Lawndale High. "Jodie" picks up with her character graduating from college and entering a complicated world. What "Daria" did for showing how inane high school was for Gen X, "Jodie" will do for exploring the trials and tribulations of a first job for a new generation. The show will satirize workplace culture, Gen Z struggles, the artifice of social media and more. With themes of empowerment along gender and racial lines, explorations of privilege, and a wicked sense of humor, "Jodie" will shine a light on the personal and professional issues young Black women face today.
