HBO’s kicking off the new half-hour comedy series Jonah From Tonga with back-to-back episodes on August 8, 2014, and in support of the upcoming premiere the network’s released a 30 second trailer. Created, written by, and starring Chris Lilley, Jonah From Tonga will have a six episode run which finishes up on September 5, 2014.
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.”
