Chris Lilley on 'Ja'mie: Private School Girl,' quiche, and 'Summer Heights High' fans

Australian comedian Chris Lilley made a giant splash in America when his series Summer Heights High aired on HBO, introducing fans to a trio of incredible characters: bossy drama teacher Mr. G, unruly delinquent Jonah, and vicious exchange student Ja’mie King. Lilley hit again with the follow-up Angry Boys, and now he’s back for another round, but only one character is taking the spotlight this time.

In Ja’mie: Private School Girl (premiering Nov. 24 on HBO at 10:30 p.m. ET), Lilley explores the school, family and romantic life of the offensive teen queen in full detail. EW chatted with Lilley about his celebrity fans, staying in character (perhaps too much) and why Ja’mie is more than just a horrible, horrible person.  READ FULL STORY

Presenting a teaser for the 'Girls' season 3 teaser -- VIDEO

Sorry, everybody — we’ve officially entered a world where teasers of teasers of trailers for actual works of entertainment are a thing. But hey, at least this one has a shot of Adam Driver shirtless.

Last night, Lena Dunham took to Instagram to post a shortened version of the teaser for Girls season 3. (The full-length preview of a preview debuts Sunday.) Though the whole thing is only 15 seconds long, it contains pretty much everything you’d expect from a full episode of Girls — namely, Hannah being self-absorbed, Marnie looking gorgeous but also like an asshole, Shoshanna making us wish she had more screen time, Jessa barely doing anything, catchy music, and, of course, nudity.

HBO's New 'Looking' trailer: Jonathan Groff is looking for love and a roommate in San Francisco

Glee alum and C.O.G. star Jonathan Groff leads an upcoming HBO gay drama/comedy called Looking. HBO debuted their new 30-second trailer, featuring Groff musing, “What’s wrong with having a life outside of work?” Then adding, perhaps to the chagrin of City of Angels-dwellers, “If I didn’t want to have a life, I’d move to L.A.” We see him walking around a moody looking San Francisco, attempting to find a roommate, but somehow finding his browser on OkCupid. The cast also includes Frankie Alvarez and Murray Bartlett.

John Oliver leaving 'The Daily Show' for new HBO series

The bad news: Emmy-award winning comedian John Oliver is leaving The Daily Show, where he’s been serving as a correspondent since 2006.

The good news: He’ll be moving to HBO for a brand-new topical comedy series, slated to launch in 2014. The show will air weekly on Sunday nights.

Oliver caught the cable giant’s eye this summer, when he spent two months filling in for Daily Show host Jon Stewart. “We weren’t otherwise searching for another weekly talk show, but when we saw John Oliver handling host duties on The Daily Show, we knew that his singular perspective and distinct voice belonged on HBO,” said HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “We are extremely excited that John has agreed to make HBO his home.”

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining HBO, especially as I presume this means I get free HBO now,” Oliver added. “I want to thank Comedy Central, and everyone at The Daily Show for the best seven and a half years of my life. But most of all, I’d like to thank Jon Stewart. He taught me everything I know. In fact, if I fail in the future, it’s entirely his fault.”

HBO has just released a gritty trailer for their upcoming serial narrative drama True Detective, which stars Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Matthew McConaughey (Mud) as two detectives brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked on in 1995 involving a serial killer in Louisiana.

The show floats back and forth between their questioning of the crime in the present day and the events that happened while they were investigating the homicide in 1995.

The dark trailer showcases both detectives struggling with the effects of having investigated such a twisted homicide case for the course of 17 years.

'Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth' trailer: Iron Mike takes the stage -- VIDEO

By the time he was 12 years old, Mike Tyson had been arrested over 38 times. By the time he was 20 years old — 20 years, four months, and 22 days, to be exact — Tyson had become the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history, annihilating opponents with vicious knock-outs.

How did Tyson go from juvenile delinquent to champion boxer… not to mention convicted rapist, notorious ear-biter, quasi-professional pigeon racer, and unlikely Hangover co-star? We’ll learn the whole story in an upcoming Spike Lee joint appropriately called Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, a filmed version of the one-man show Tyson debuted in Vegas and brought to Broadway in August 2012. It’s a tale of rage, ambition, and even the occasional joke — as when Tyson says something about making a “deal with the devil,” and a photo of Don King flashes onscreen.

HBO greenlights 'Criminal Justice' miniseries, Robert De Niro in for James Gandolfini

After months of will-they-or-won’t-they speculation about HBO’s seven-part miniseries Criminal Justice, HBO has decided to move forward with the project. EW has confirmed that the mini-series, which was given the greenlight back in May when James Gandolfini was set to star, is moving forward once again, now with Robert De Niro in the lead role.

Based on the 2008 BBC series by Peter Moffat, Criminal Justice is set in New York City, where an attorney (De Niro) is a bit too ambitious in taking on the case of a Pakistani being accused of murder. Riz Ahmed, Bill Camp, Payman Maadi, and Poorna Jagannathan will also star.

Gandolfini remains an executive producer on the project posthumously, with Steven Zaillian set to direct the first hour.
