The true queen Ja'mie King is BACK!

Australian writer and performer Chris Lilley’s hilariously monstrous teen creation – bitchy school girl Ja’mie King - is returning to BBC Three for another term in a brand-new six-part comedy series.

Manipulative and shallow exchange student Ja’mie was last seen wreaking havoc in Summer Heights High, which aired on BBC Three in 2008.

Ja’mie: Private School Girl, follows the teenager in her final year of school, seeing her far removed from the hallowed grounds of Summer Heights High and back in her natural habitat - the lush manicured lawns of Hillford Girls Grammar School. It witnesses her last few weeks of school and the series of events that will change her life forever.

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.”

BBC Three Controller, Zai Bennett, said: “I’m delighted that BBC Three’s relationship with Chris Lilley and his wonderful comedy creations continues. Ja’mie certainly made an impact with our viewers when she first appeared on the channel five years ago and I have no doubt she’ll provoke a great reaction in this new series all of her very own.”

The series is co-produced by Chris Lilley and Princess Pictures in association with ABC TV in Australia and HBO in the US.

Chris Lilley’s previous BBC Three projects were Summer Heights High, which ran for eight episodes in 2008 and Angry Boys, a 12-part mockumentary series which transmitted in 2011.
