Chris Lilley Is Bringing Back One of His Popular Characters in His New Show


Australian comedian Chris Lilley, the man behind series like Summer Heights High and Angry Boys, is working on a mysterious TV project, and he announced yesterday via Twitter and Facebook that he’s bringing back one of his old characters in the series. Lilley’s new show is a six-part half-hour comedy for Australian network ABC, but that’s all we really know about it. In his post, Lilley linked to an ABC network poll about which of his characters is coming back. The options for the poll are Jonah, Ja’mie, and Mr G from Summer Heights High; Gran and the twins from Angry Boys; and Phil Olivetti from We Can Be Heroes. Trying to guess with that poll is a great way to fill the zillion years before we get Lilley’s new show in the States.
