"JA'MIE: PRIVATE SCHOOL GIRL," NEW COMEDY SERIES FROM CHRIS LILLEY, CREATOR AND STAR OF "SUMMER HEIGHTS HIGH" AND "ANGRY BOYS," TO DEBUT NOV. 24 ON HBO

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 9, 2013 - JA'MIE: PRIVATE SCHOOL GIRL, a new comedy series from Australian sensation Chris Lilley, star and creator of the acclaimed series "Summer Heights High" and "Angry Boys," will debut SUNDAY, NOV. 24 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Produced by Lilley and his producing partner, Laura Waters, who previously teamed for "Summer Heights High" (where the character of Ja'mie was introduced to HBO viewers) and "Angry Boys," the six-episode half-hour series is co-produced by HBO and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in association with the BBC.

"I find teenage girls endlessly funny," notes Lilley. "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."

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.

"Summer Heights High," which debuted on HBO in Nov. 2008, took a humorous and brutally honest look at life in an average public school, with Lilley playing all three lead roles. The show became the best-selling TV series on DVD in Australian history. Entertainment Weekly called it "brilliant," while the Wall Street Journal said that "the talent of Mr. Lilley, a brilliant mimic, is a divine salve," and TV Guide declared that the show "reaches new peaks of comedic ecstasy."

"Angry Boys," which debuted on HBO in Jan. 2012, looked at the lives of average boys and men, displaying their day-to-day interactions and struggles to fulfill their obligations to family and friends, with Lilley playing all six main characters. The San Francisco Chronicle said the show has "infectiously juvenile humor," while Bloomberg.com noted that "its finely etched characters insinuate themselves into our affections."

JA'MIE: PRIVATE SCHOOL GIRL was created by Chris Lilley, who is also the series' writer, star and co-producer; Laura Waters executive produces; directed by Chris Lilley and Stuart McDonald.
