MTV is gearing up to debut a new scripted comedy series called I Just Want My Pants Back, and we here at Collider have been provided with an exclusive clip to share with our readers. The show comes from executive producer Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) and follows a group of friends navigating post-college life in Brooklyn. The show is based on the book of the same name by David J. Rosen and is set to debut with two back-to-back episodes on Thursday, February 2nd at 11pm ET/PT. The pilot was written by Rosen and directed by Liman (who also helmed the pilot of The O.C.). Hit the jump to check out the clip.
Here’s the synopsis for the series:
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.
The series also stars Kim Shaw as Jason’s best friend ‘Tina;’ Jordan Carlos as ‘Eric’ and Elisabeth Hower as ‘Stacey,’ college sweethearts making it go of it as couple as they forge into their adult years; Sunkrish Bala as ‘Bobby’ the owner of the local bodega and will guest star Chris Parnell as ‘J.B.,’ Jason’s no-nonsense boss at the casting agency.
