It's the final months of high school for Ja'mie, who's back on the lush manicured lawns of Hillford Girls Grammar after the enduring the trials of Summer Heights High public school. But the "queen bee" isn't resting on her laurels - she's set her sights on winning the prestigious Hillford Medal given to the "Best Girl in Year 12." Meanwhile, Ja'mie must continue to meet the responsibilities that come with being the best-known and most-feared girl on campus, while juggling her academic and charity work, social life and family relationships.

JA'MIE: PRIVATE SCHOOL GIRL is produced by Lilley and his producing partner, Laura Waters, who previously produced "Summer Heights High" (where the character of Ja'mie was introduced to HBO viewers) and "Angry Boys," and co-produced by HBO and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in association with the BBC.

JA'MIE: PRIVATE SCHOOL GIRL has already sparked extensive critical praise in Australia, with the Australian saying the show has "blown the roof off the universe," and calling Chris Lilley "simply amazing."

"Summer Heights High," which debuted on HBO in Nov. 2008, took a humorous and brutally honest look at life in an average Australian 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 News noted that "its finely etched characters insinuate themselves into our affections."
