Stumptown is an American crime drama television series that debuted on ABC on 25 September 2019.
The series is based on the comic book series of the same name, created by Greg Rucka, Matthew Southworth and Justin Greenwood and adapted for television by writer-producer Jason Richman.
Flashbacks show Dex and Grey meeting for the first time six years ago and befriending each other. Grey connects Dex with a new client, Allen, a widower who offers to pay Dex $1,000 if she finds Katrina, a girl he met at a bar. Dex locates Katrina and completes the job, but the check Allen gives her turns out to be worthless. While searching his home, someone knocks her out from behind. Hoffman subsequently informs Dex that “Katrina” is actually a professional con artist, who has robbed dozens of men like Allen for several years.
Determined to get her money, Dex tracks Allen to a motel room, where she stops Katrina’s psychotic partner Megan from asphyxiating him after discovering their relationship. Allen pays Dex her fee and leaves to start a new life with Katrina. One of Grey’s former criminal partners, Jack, comes by to beg for money to pay a debt; Grey refuses to help and Jack is found murdered shortly thereafter under a bridge. Based on advice from Hoffman’s superior, Cosgrove, Dex decides to apply for a license so she can legally work as a private investigator (PI).
