Ja’mie King From Summer Heights High Set to Star in Her Own TV Show
1:32 pm, September 9th | by Colette McIntyre
Finally, our favorite high school mean girl is back! Australian comedian Chris Lilley has announced that Ja’mie King, the “stunning” and stunningly callous teen that he played in We Can Be Heroes and Summer Heights High, will be the star of a new show titled Ja’mie: Private School Girl. While Lilley has an incredible repertoire of diverse and hilarious characters, Ja’mie, with her glaring narcissism and hatred of “povo skanks,” has always been one of the most memorable. The queen of Hilford Girls Grammar will return for six half-hour episodes in which she will experience “life-changing events” and take “on social media with a vengeance.” Liley said in a statement: “I find teenage girls endlessly funny, 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.” Private School Girl will air on HBO starting Sunday, November 24th, at 9:30 PM, and in Britain on BBC Three.
Here’s a summary of the show, provided by 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.
Watch a teaser for the new series below as well as some of our favorite Ja’mie moments that are all just, so random.
