There’s still 121 days until Christmas, but only 101 days until the stateside TV return of Chris Lilley. Lilley’s latest series, “Angry Boys,” will premiere Dec. 5 on HBO, the network announced Wednesday.
For the unacquainted, Lilley (aka he who revolutionized the concept of setting musicals based on natural disasters to the music of Bananarama) is the creator and star of the cult comedy “Summer Heights High,” which aired on HBO in 2008. Think of him as the Australian, more offensive Ricky Gervais.
Like “Heights High,” “Angry Boys” is shot as a mock documentary and finds Lilley filling the shoes of all six slightly twisted lead characters, ranging from a pair of 17-year-old twins in Australia to a 24-year-old Los Angeles-based rapper.
