MTV Prepares Daria Marathon
Starting today and until August 3, MTV will give fans a chance to relive the past as they offer a special marathon of everyone’s favorite precocious and antisocial teen, Daria. MTV will be airing a select few episodes taken from the five seasons of the show and air them from 9 AM to 12 PM.
Originally created by Glenn Eichler and Susie Lewis Lynn, Daria follows the adventures of the titular character, Daria Morgendorffer as she offers biting satire on social norms and pop culture while trying to deal with everyday teenage life. The show was a spinoff of Mike Judge’s hit Beavis and Butthead, where Daria originally appeared, and ran from 1997 to 2002.
In support of the marathon, stand up comedians and hosts of the Nikki & Sara Show Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer will be providing superfan Daria commentary throughout the week.
All five individual seasons of Daria are also available on the Daria: Fan Favorites DVD, which includes 16 all-time, fan favorite episodes.
