"Angry Boys" (HBO TV show) is a comedy series from Chris Lilley, creator and star of the acclaimed HBO comedy series "Summer Heights High." Shot in mock documentary style, the show explores what it means to be a 21st-century boy by putting the male of the species under the microscope, with Lilley playing multiple roles including:

• 17-year-old Daniel Sims who lives on a small farm with his family in the rural town of Dunt in South Australia. The household includes his identical twin, Nathan, his mother, two younger brothers, a sister, and now his mother's new boyfriend, Steve.

• Nathan Sims who is Daniel's identical twin brother. He suffers from a hearing impairment with only 10 percent hearing and his condition is worsening. He is a bit of a loner and an outcast from Daniel and his gang of friends. Nathan is regularly in trouble with the local police.

• Jen Okazaki who is a soft spoken Japanese wife and mother of three. She is also an ambitious tyrant. Her primary focus is her son Tim, who she trained and pushed into becoming a skateboarding champion. Although she had moved the family to America for a better life, she realizes that Tim's career can be better promoted from Tokyo if she markets him as not only a cute Japanese boy, but also a homosexual. She builds a successful empire around "Gaystyle Enterprises," and holds suffocating control of Tim, who is struggling to reconcile his domineering mother with the desire to be a normal teenager.

The "Angry Boys" cast also includes Greg Fairall, Sarah Sutherland, Deborah Jones, Liam Keltie and Samuel Cooke. Shot over seven months, edited for a year and featuring over seventy locations in three countries, the "Angry Boys" TV show is the biggest project yet from the successful partnership of Chris Lilley and Laura Waters. The series is produced by Princess Pictures.
