Born Oceanside, New York, United States
Occupation Writer, television producer, voice actress
Known for Daria, Beavis and Butt-Head, and Sea Rescue

Susie Lewis is the co-creator of the American animated television series Daria.[1][2][3]

Personal life[edit]

She attended Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.[4]

Career[edit]

Lewis's career began after moving to New York where she applied for an internship at MTV and then began working on Beavis and Butt-Head producing the music video segments.[4] She chose and edited the videos that the duo watched and oversaw the writing and recording of their comments.[5] She and Glenn Eichler were later asked to become co-creators for a spin-off of the show called Daria), built around the character Daria Morgendorffer, who originally appeared as the intelligent, sarcastic foil to Beavis and Butthead.[4][6] Daria came at a request for a "show for girls" from MTV executives, so it was fitting that one of the co-creators would be a woman, and that women would make up a sizable chunk of the writing and directing teams.[7]
