MTV Studios reboots '90s TV shows Daria, The Real World

MTV Studios Launched to Develop & Produce Reboots Originals for SVOD

The misanthropic, combat-boot-wearing sarcasm machine that inspired a generation of teen girls is making a move back to the screen, as animated series Daria is one of the titles being worked into a reboot with the newly launched MTV Studios.

Most of these planned reboots seem perfectly decent, but the one that may ruffle the most feathers is the new Daria.

The show's revival is part of a larger strategy to develop new series and find ways to bring back iconic properties from the network's 35-year history, work that will be done via MTV Studios, a new unit announced Thursday.

This new series will be a different take on the 1990s feminist series from writer Grace Edwards (Inside Amy Schumer). Also set for the MTV programming drive are new shows such as fact-based story chronicle MTV's Straight Up Ghosted and a new docu series (à la The Hills,), called The Valley, along with another season of its Emmy-winning makeover series, Made. Jodie is Daria's intellectual equal, but unlike Daria, she's popular and well-liked in school.

There's now no word on when we can expect Daria & Jodie to grace our screens but in the meantime, get schooled on sarcasm via the entire back catalogue of Daria on Stan.

Melania Trump sends a questionable message en route to the border
Again, weird, coming from an immigrant herself - unless you want to use pretzel logic and call it ironic. Twitter users were quick to criticise the first lady's jacket faux pas and the not-so-hidden message.

Melania Trump wears ‘I really don’t care’ jacket to visit DETAINED children
Despite severe criticism online, Melania's spokesman Stephanie Grisham insisted there was no hidden message behind the jacket. On the other hand, it's rare for a first lady to wear an item of clothing that so directly contradicts her stated intentions.

"It's better served for us to bring that out and look to partner with a SVOD (platform) because it's where the audience is looking for that type of scripted", said MTV president Chris McCarthy. Following the two women as they "take on the world", the series will explore and deconstruct gender norms, racism, societal expectations, popular culture, and social classes.

MTV Studios is also planning some new, non-reboots as well.

In addition to the four revivals, MTV Studios has two new reality shows cooking behind the scenes. This group of young people is living in The Valley of Nogales, Arizona, a town along the border of the United States and Mexico.
