The Daria spinoff, Jodie, will now be an animated film instead of a series and it has added a ton of cast members.
The project is from Comedy Central and MTV Entertainment Studios
Joining titular star Tracee Ellis Ross is Pamela Adlon, Cole Escola, Jojo T. Gibbs, William Jackson Harper, Zosia Mamet, Alex Moffat, Dermot Mulroney, Arden Myrin, Kal Penn, Kofi Siriboe, Dulcé Sloan and Heléne Yorke.
New character descriptions:
Adlon will play Jocelyn Light, the trailblazing VP of Internet Affairs at FirstFinity whom Jodie reveres. Penn will play Sandeep, another fellow intern who is a fitness-obsessed, tech bro. Mamet will play Greta, a beachy-waved, self-proclaimed empath and Jodie’s fellow intern at Firstfinity.
Mulroney will play Lionel, the powerful and charming CEO of Firstfinity. Escola will play Ryan, Jodie’s intern friend at Firstfinity who is allergic to earnestness. Gibbs will play Tiffany, who has swag for weeks, lives in Jodie’s building and is Cas’ ex. Harper will play Mack, Jodie’s witty and supportive high school sweetheart from the original Daria series. Moffat will play Barry, the overeager internship coordinator at Firstfinity who, despite being in his 50s, desperately tries to be Gen-Z cool.
Myrin will play Britney, the former Lawndale cheerleader from Daria turned influencer at FirstFinity. Siriboe will play Raymond, Jodie’s incredibly handsome, but not-so-friendly supervisor at Firstfinity
