AceShowbiz - Tracee Ellis Ross has been tapped to executive produce and voice the title character in Comedy Central's latest adult animated series "Jodie".
The 47-year-old "Mixed-ish" actress will front the spin-off of the MTV cult classic "Daria", which will follow Daria's pal Jodie Landon as she attempts to navigate post-college life.
According to Deadline, "Jodie" will premiere alongside Comedy Central's flagship series "South Park" as the network attempts to ramp up its adult animated content.
The show will "satirise workplace culture, Gen Z struggles, the artifice of social media and more" as Jodie takes on her first job in the adult world, and will be led by themes of empowerment along gender and racial lines, shining a light on the issues young black women face today.
A premiere date has yet to be announced.
