"Jonah from Tonga" is a comedy series on HBO that is created and written by and stars Chris Lilley ("Angry Boys," "Summer Heights High," "Ja'mie: Private School Girl") as one of his groundbreaking characters, the rebellious 14-year-old Jonah.

After being expelled from Summer Heights High, Jonah Takalua's father, Rocky, banished him to the island of Tongapatu to spend time with his extended family and get his life back together. But four months later, fed up with Jonah's antics, his uncle sends him back to Sydney to enroll in yet another school, the Holy Cross School. Once again, the always impressionable Jonah finds himself adapting to a new school and fending off new foes and other delinquents, all while trying to be a "good boy."

"Jonah from Tonga" is co-produced by HBO and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in association with the BBC. The series was created and written by Chris Lilley; executive produced by Chris Lilley and Laura Waters, who also serve as producers; and directed by Chris Lilley and Stuart McDonald.
