Ja'mie: Private School Girl is a mockumentary-style television show created and starring Australian comedian Chris Lilley. The show first aired on Australian television in 2013 and later premiered on HBO in the United States. The show follows the life of Ja'mie King, a fictional character created by Lilley. Ja'mie is a 17-year-old girl attending a prestigious private school in Sydney, Australia. She is obsessed with popularity, status, and being the center of attention. Throughout the show, Ja'mie's narcissistic behavior and desire for power lead to various conflicts with her peers, family, and school staff.

The show is presented in a documentary style, with Ja'mie frequently breaking the fourth wall to address the audience directly. In addition to Lilley, the show features a cast of young actors including Georgie Jennings, Georgia Treu, Laura Grady, Phoebe Roberts, D'Arci Buckerfield, Tayla Duyal, Madelyn Warrell, Alex Cooper, and Lester Ellis Jr.

One of the major themes of the show is the pressure that young people often face in regards to fitting in and maintaining social status. Ja'mie is constantly trying to keep up with her peers and maintain her position as the most popular girl in her grade. She frequently bullies other students and looks down on those that she deems as unpopular or uncool.

Another major theme of the show is the idea of identity and self-image. Ja'mie is very conscious of her appearance and spends a significant amount of time and effort on her makeup, hair, and clothing. Additionally, she frequently lies and exaggerates details about her life in order to maintain her image as a wealthy and important member of the school community.

Despite her often unlikable behavior, Ja'mie is also a complex and nuanced character. She struggles with the pressure to conform and fit in, and often seems unsure of her own identity and place in the world. She also faces various personal struggles throughout the show, including a strained relationship with her mother, issues with her weight and body image, and difficulty connecting with her peers on a deeper level.

Overall, Ja'mie: Private School Girl is a compelling and entertaining exploration of the pressures and challenges faced by young people in regards to social status and self-image. Lilley's exceptional writing and performances, combined with the talented young cast, make the show a must-watch for fans of comedy and satire.
