Tracee Ellis Ross to Front 'Daria' Spin-Off 'Jodie' for Comedy Central

The daughter of Diana Ross has been confirmed to executive produce and lend her voice to the title character for the upcoming adult animated show 'Jodie'.

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.

Jodie is the brainchild of writer Grace Edwards, who has lent her talents to shows such as Netflix's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", Comedy Central's "Inside Amy Schumer", and HBO's "Insecure".

A premiere date has yet to be announced.
