Ja’mie: Private School Girl will follow Lilley’s manipulative teen queen during her final year at Hilford Girls Grammar – the posh private school she attended before being sent to Summer Heights High as an exchange student. The series will premiere on Australian network ABC TV on October 23 and the six 30-minute episodes are expected to begin on BBC Three shortly afterwards.
Lilley created Ja’mie King for his 2005 Australian series We Can Be Heroes but the character was introduced to British viewers in his follow-up show Summer Heights High, which aired on BBC Three in 2008. During her time at Summer Heights High, some of King’s words of wisdom included “Just because I’m rich, doesn’t mean I’m a bitch”, “There’s so many fat chicks in this school” and “I think a lot of public school people are dumb. I think that it’s not really their fault. That’s the thing. It comes from their parents.”
