What’s it like to be an insider at a typical high school? This November, HBO debuts a hilarious, but brutally honest, look at modern high-school life. The show follows the journey of three diverse characters – each impeccably played by writer/creator Chris Lilley – over the course of one semester at Summer Heights High.
Shot in a documentary style, the show explores the facets of a typical public high school – including social cliques, bullying, stereotyping, profanity, racism, and homophobia – through the actions of its three main characters: Ja’mie King, a junior exchange student with a massive ego and sense of entitlement; Mr. G, a 30-something senior drama teacher with delusions of grandeur; and Jonah Takalua, a middle-school delinquent on the fast track to nowhere.
