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.
Celebrity judge Antonio Price pays Dex to deliver a summons to his older brother Lataurus for selling the house he bought him behind his back. Dex discovers that Lataurus used the money to purchase rare civet cats for pet shop owner Dwaddle Chen, but since the cats were seized by customs officers, he is terrified Chen will kill him. Hoffman is assigned to escort a police captain’s wife to a concert; on the way home, her car is stolen and Hoffman uses his leverage on Grey to force him to help find it.
Lataurus is abducted, and the judge refuses to pay the ransom, saying that his deadbeat brother is not worth it. This causes Dex to reevaluate her hostile reaction to Ansel’s wanting to leave the house, as she realises that he’s tired of being treated as a child and wants the chance to live like a normal adult. Dex stages a rescue to free Lataurus from Chen, but the judge is shot and decides to give his brother the money to get his cats back after he declines an offer to move in with him. Ansel moves out with his sister’s blessing. Hoffman tells Grey that he will be going undercover as an informant in exchange for his record being cleared.
