Exclusive: Chris Lilley confirms new secret TV project for 2013

By
Angry Boys and Summer Heights High creator Chris Lilley has revealed to Digital Spy that he will have a new mockumentary TV show out in 2013.

Lilley said that he couldn't reveal exact details about the characters involved in the show, but stated that his aim was for it to air on the BBC next year.

"I'm well underway with a new project and I'm keeping it a bit of a secret and under wraps for now. It's along the same lines as my other shows We Can Be Heroes, Angry Boys and Summer Heights High," Lilley told Digital Spy.

"It's a mockumentary style and I'll play the characters. It's looking really cool. That should be on the BBC next year hopefully. I don't control when they put it on, but that's when we want it to happen.

"I want to keep as much of the show as possible a secret, but if you've loved my last three shows, this is part four. It's going to be really good."

He continued: "We're fully underway, we're halfway through auditions and we're going to shoot in January.

"I'm really wanting to move things a bit more quickly with this one. I don't want to keep people waiting so long, so hopefully it will be ready next year, which will be really cool."

He laughed: "I'm not sure how much I'm going to get in trouble for telling you stuff because I'm not really doing interviews."

When asked whether there was a possibility that the show may feature some of his classic comic creations such as Gran, Ja'mie King, Mr G or Jonah Takalua, Lilley was coy, but commented: "I never like to think of any character as being over. I'm always thinking of different ways of bringing them back."

Lilley is currently promoting the official Angry Boys collector's edition soundtrack, which is available to buy now and features remixes, the score and theme music, behind-the-scenes never-before-seen video footage and a film of the character S.mouse's live performance in Melbourne.

The album also features musical moments from Summer Heights High, such as school drama teacher Mr G's performance of 'Naughty Girl'.
