"The Pantsless Detective"
Panceliss by name, pantsless by choice. Nothing can stop private detective Richard Panceliss when he’s working a case—not even the need to put on a pair of pants. Created by the Austin-based Dipu Bhattacharya (left) and Tom Chamberlain (right), the comedy noir web series The Pantsless Detective chronicles two related cases over the course of two five-episode seasons. Tom Chamberlain plays Richard Panceliss; Dipu Bhattacharya plays the detective’s antagonistic intern Smitty. Season 1 finds Panceliss tailing a man who may be cheating on his wife. Season 2 involves Smitty’s kidnapping. Two episodes of Season 3 of the Austin-made comedy web series will premiere 3 p.m. June 25 in the Gibson Lounge at Maggie Mae’s during the Austin WebFest. Season 3 will premiere online in June after the Austin WebFest. Dipu Bhattacharya joins Tom Chamberlain during this interview.
