Tracee Ellis Ross will voice Jodie Landon, the lead character in 'Daria' spin-off show 'Jodie'.
The 'Black-ish' is proud to be lending her talents to Jodie Landon, the first black female character in an "adult animated show" in almost 20 years and the MTV series will follow her alter ego as she "comes into her own and enters the workplace in her first post-college job in tech".
Tracee said in a statement: "I am thrilled to bring this project to life with MTV, both as executive producer and by voicing Jodie's character. Being able to give voice to fresh, feminist and unexplored stories of young women excites me.
"We will feature a diverse cast, comprised mainly of unapologetically smart and ambitious young female characters who are vulnerable and flawed and interesting and funny....
"Jodie will be the first adult animated show in almost 20 years that will star a black woman. It will be a smart, funny workplace comedy full of commentary about everything from gentrification to sex to tech to call-out culture."
