“What Do Men Want?” is a 13 x half hour episodic drama revolving around two passionate actors searching for truth, love and happiness but usually finding lies, rejection and disillusionment.
Jimmy and Bob, are 2 struggling actors, best friends and flatmates. Whilst trying to “make it” in the acting industry they also desperately want to find love, however, they often look in the wrong places. They become players, date the wrong women for the wrong reasons, try to sleep their way to the top, lie and cheat to get what they want: fame, fortune, sex. Truth is, all they really need is love and satisfaction and it’s right in front of them: their gorgeous best (girl) friend, their own friendship, their passion for the arts. Each episode focuses on their tortuous and entertaining path to finding these truths.
