Watch a Teaser for Chris Lilley’s New Ja’mie King Show

Of all the distinct and hilarious characters Australian comedian Chris Lilley played between his 2008 show Summer Heights High and its follow-up, Angry Boys, mean girl Ja’mie King was the most memorable. The good news out of the land down under this weekend is that Lilley plans to resurrect the catty teen for a new show titled Ja'mie: Private School Girl. "Australia's favourite beyatch" will return for six half-hour episodes in which she will face "life-changing events" and "[take] on social media with a vengeance." Mastermind Lilley says he "can't wait to show everyone what Ja'mie's been up to," adding, "I find teenage girls endlessly funny, so being able to write for and play the meanest bitch in school has been so fun." Expect Private School Girl to air on HBO stateside and BBC Three in the UK later this year. So random.
