Chris Lilley, the creator and star of Australia's favorite mockumentary series, announced that his next project is "Ja'mie: Private School Girl
," a new six-part comedy series to air on ABC1 in Oz and HBO in the US.
In the US, "Ja'mie: Private School Girl" will premiere on HBO Sunday, November 24 at 10:30pm.
The series will see Lilley reprise his role as Ja'mie King (We Can Be Heroes, Summer Heights High), but unlike the shows before, "Private School Girl" will revolve entirely around Ja'mie.
“I find teenage girls endlessly funny,” said Lilley in the announcement. “So being able to write for and play the meanest bitch in school has been so fun. I can’t wait to show everyone what Ja’mie’s been up to.”
According to HBO:
Ja'mie: Private School Girl follows the eponymous school captain during the last few months of her final year of school, far removed from the grounds of Summer Heights High and back on the lush manicured lawns of Hillford Girls Grammar School. Returning to her private school roots, the series highlights the trials and responsibilities that come with being the “most well-known” girl on campus, including her academic and charity work, social life and relationships with family.
Due to the immense success of his past shows in Australia, the US and the United Kingdom, it is no surprise that "Ja'mie: Private School Girl" is co-produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and HBO in association with the BBC.
“Summer Heights High” broke records to become the best-selling TV series on DVD in Australian history.
