'Ja'mie: Private School Girl' on ABC1

This JUST in!

Look who is back...

Yes. Ja'ime.

In the best TV news of the year, Australia’s favourite 'mean girl' is baaack, in the much-anticipated new show 'Ja’mie: Private School Girl'

First, the trailer:

Ja’mie King returns to her private schoolgirl roots for ABC TV.

ABC TV has confirmed that Australia’s favourite 'biatch' is back… schoolgirl Ja’mie King will return to the small screen in a new series by Australian writer and performer Chris Lilley (the word 'genius' is bandied about regarding Chris... it's absolutely warranted).

Revealed on ABC TV’s social media channels today, the six-part half-hour comedy series will
air later this year on both ABC and HBO.

Today’s announcement has capped off a week where die-hard fans flocked to guess who they thought would be back on screen after a series of cryptic videos featuring previous identities were released online. Brilliant social media.

The series, Ja’mie: Private School Girl, follows Ja’mie in her final year of school, seeing her
far removed from the infamous Summer Heights High and back on the safe, manicured lawns of Hillford Girls Grammar School.

The series, co-produced by Chris Lilley and Princess Pictures in association with ABC TV in
Australia and HBO in the US, will also screen on BBC Three in the UK and follows Ja’mie as
she experiences her last few weeks of school and the series of events that will change her life

Creator Chris Lilley, said: “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.”

ABC1 Channel Controller, Brendan Dahill, said: “Ja’mie King is easily one of the most cunning
characters in a school uniform we’ve ever seen. I know viewers will enjoy keeping up with the
high drama, high-pace life of a teenage girl going through the motions of finishing school.”
