The Pan-STARRS1 Planet Survey (Pan-Planets) is a search for transiting extra-solar planets in the Galactic disk with a focus on planets around M-dwarfs and White dwarfs. The large field of view of the Pan-STARRS1 camera enables us to monitor ∼50 000 M-dwarfs and ∼5 000 White dwarfs brighter than iP1 = 18 in seven fields. We give a description of the science goals and observating strategy and present some early results from the first two observing campaigns conducted in 2010 and 2011.
