Coming to BBC Three, Summer Heights High is an award-winning mockumentary-style comedy written by and starring comedian Chris Lilley.
Summer Heights High explores what happens over one school term in an average Australian high school.
Playing all three main characters, Lilley brings to life Jonah Takalua, a mischievous schoolboy from Tonga with the odds stacked against him; Mr G, an ego-driven drama teacher with delusional showbiz dreams; and Ja'mie King, a bitchy private schoolgirl on a student exchange, set to make her mark on Summer Heights High.
Shocking, absurd and often dark, Chris Lilley's uncanny insight into human behaviour reveals a world where small issues become huge, social groups are important, careers are built, young minds are moulded, hopes are shattered and dreams are realised.
Lucy Lumsden, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning, says: "Summer Heights High is a fantastic addition to the BBC Three comedy line-up for 2008 – with a truly brilliant central performance from Chris Lilley."
Summer Heights High was shot on location at a working high school over 11 weeks.
