From acclaimed director and executive producer Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Swingers, Go, Bourne Identity) and based on David J. Rosen's novel of the same name, I Just Want My Pants Back follows the triumphs and misadventures of a group of friends as they navigate post-college life in Brooklyn.
Struggling with sex, love, career and friendship as a young twenty-something living in Brooklyn, the series follows Jason Strider, played by Peter Vack.
Jason puts hanging with his friends, going to bars and hooking up above his entry level job where he's the lowest rung at a casting agency, and dreams of being in music journalism - but has no idea how to get there.
It's not until a one night stand steals his heart and his pants, that he begins a quest to get his beloved jeans back, and hopefully the girl, while also growing up along the way.
