Based on the graphic novel series, US crime drama Stumptown follows Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders), a strong, assertive and sharp-witted veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great PI, but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police.
Stumptown, a nickname for the city of Portland where the series is set, follows Dex as she solves problems the police can't get involved in. Dex's intelligence and natural instinct to do what's right makes her perfect for the job, but her brash style and disregard for the rules often gets her in trouble.
Struggling with PTSD after an explosion killed her childhood sweetheart in Afghanistan, burdened by heavy gambling debts and dealing with the responsibility of taking care of her younger brother, there is more to Dex than meets the eye.
The series also stars Jake Johnson as Grey McConnell, Tantoo Cardinal as Sue Lynn Blackbird, Cole Sibus as Ansel Parios, Adrian Martinez as Tookie with Camryn Manheim as Lieutenant Cosgrove and Michael Ealy as Detective Miles Hoffman.
