At least partly, the reason was because MTV wanted to broaden its demographic.

Now a writer for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Eichler has the kind of self-mocking deadpan that Daria herself has.

“I guess it’s flatness by way of, stylistic choice, but also, uh, ability? The show copied several characters from pop culture at the time. You didn’t need crazy camera angles to make it good.” The five-minute pilot was a hit with the focus group. Disher recounts with pride how the show went to the storyboard artists on literal cassette tapes, with an exposure sheet that she worked out with a literal stopwatch.

Jane’s brother, the wannabe rocker Trent, was based on Dave Navarro and named after Trent Reznor. Di Martino, the yelling teacher with the eye twitch, was based on Christopher Walken in “Pulp Fiction.” She drew him on her couch while watching the movie, pausing the VHS tape to get his every facial expression. could remember who actually had the idea first to spin off Daria into her own show — is that the show is otherwise amazingly, brilliantly considered.

He and Jane still spend a lot of time together, and Daria often joins in.

“A lot of the issues and feelings you have in high school are timeless,” says Lewis, something you can see in the designs for the updated characters, which share an awful lot in common with their high school personas even though they may have kids or a few extra pounds now.At the turn of the millennium, MTV was saturated with Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC music videos — and obsessed with the nascent careers of Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. But she became one of the first characters I saw on television who seemed to feel the way I did about the world.The phrase I held onto was from “Esteemsters,” the “Daria” “Daria” didn’t just come from “Beavis” — the crew did, too.I’m half joking, half having a panic attack about all this sense of mortality stuff, but in truth, Lewis and Disher have done a pretty great job of reimagining the Daria crew into their adult counterparts.It all feels honest; not depressing but not indulgent fantasy either — right at home in the wry tone that made the show the poster child for an era.
