After a very revealing photo shoot with men’s magazine ZOO Weekly and placing 98th in Maxim Magazine’s hottest 100 (seriously though, wouldn’t you hate to be 99 or 100 on that list) Ja’mie King will be gracing our screens tonight in her very own series – Ja’mie: Private School Girl.

While I wasn’t graced with a preview screener of tonight’s episode, I have read that we can expect the show to live up to it’s hype and that creator Chris Lilley is back to his Summer Heights High best.  The laughs are expected to come early on with a raunchy assembly dance routine, though the jokes about refugee’s are a little off taste (depending on who you ask)

If you haven’t been keeping up with all the news, this new six-part series follows a now 17 year old Ja’mie King in the final weeks of high school at Hilloford Girls Grammar in which she is also the school captain and in no real shock, the power has gone to her head.  There’ll be love interests, family issues and a sexting scandal to look for also.

I’ve read this series is less dark and confronting that that of Lilley’s previous outing in “Angry Boys” and we can also expect Summer Heights High’s Jonah Takalua and Angry Boys’ Gran making appearances.

Ja’mie: Private School Girl premiere’s tonight, ABC1 @ 9:05pm!  I totes can’t wait!

Chris Lilley Brings Back a Familiar Face

Chris Lilley as Private School Girl Ja’mie King

Chris Lilley is back at work on a new series and is bringing with him a familiar face from a previous series.

Lilley made the announcement via social media (Twitter and Facebook) that at least one character from either We Can Be Heroes, Summer Heights High or Angry Boys would be making an appearance and encouraged fans to vote on whom they think will be coming back.  (So far three characters from Summer Heights High, Lilley’s more popular outingare sitting in top three spots – Jonah, Mr. G and Ja’mie)

Speaking to Digital Spy about his new show last year, Lilley said: “I’m well under way with a new project and I’m keeping it a bit of a secret and under wraps for now. It’s along the same lines as my other shows, it’s a mockumentary style and I’ll play the characters.

“I want to keep as much of the show as possible a secret, but if you’ve loved my last three shows, this is part four.”  Word has it though that Lilley was spied filming in a high school dressed as Ja’mie King!

Lilley’s new series is expected to air for ABC later this year.
