‘Summer Heights High’ star returns to BBC Three with ‘Ja’mie: Private School Girl’

Posted Filed under

The character was last seen on BBC Three in Summer Heights High in 2008.

Ja’mie: Private School Girl will follow the manipulative and shallow exchange student 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 commented: “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 added: “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.”
