what Daria Did it to show how crazy high school was for Gen X, Pair Will explore the trials and tribulations of the first post-college job for the new generation. The show will satirize workplace culture, Gen Z struggles, tech, social media and more. Just as Daria Did for Daria Morgendorfer when it was a spin-off Beavis and Butthead, Pair Jody will delve deeper into Landon as she realizes she had to be a “perfect African American teen” at Lawndale High to headline her story.
