MTV is launching a new production unit called MTV Studios, which plans to revive shows like of Aeon Flux, The Real World, and Made. The big news, though, was the reboot of the classic ’90s animated series Daria. Tentatively titled Daria & Jodie, the revival will focus on Daria Morgendorffer and her pal Jodie Landon: “These two smart young women take on the world with their signature satirical voice while deconstructing popular culture, social classes, gender and race.” Not really sure if I’m board with this – Daria is pretty perfect on it’s own and I’m not sure we need to revisit (and possibly ruin) it. Also: Shouldn’t it be Daria and Jane? Even Daria and Quinn makes more sense. But whatever. I’ll withhold judgement until I see it, I guess.
Daria and Jodie will be written Grace Edwards of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt fame.A premiere date for the revival has not yet been revealed.
