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.
Dex takes a job from Ginger Lloyd (Cheryl Hines), owner of a vegan restaurant/strip club, to investigate a claim that one of the dancers is skimming from the club. As Grey continues to burrow his way into the gang, Hoffman clashes with Jimmy, a vice detective and friend of Cosgrove’s who insists on being involved with the case. Ginger showers Dex with attention and gifts (something strictly prohibited by PI regulations) and attempts to get her to sleep with a dancer.
Everything comes to a head when the dancers reveal that they have all been skimming to help a colleague who blames Ginger for his injuries; Ginger refuses to hear Dex out, fires her, and files a complaint accusing her of accepting bribes and demonstrating incompetence, putting her license at risk. Dex goes to her first group meeting, which inspires her to retaliate by filing her own complaints with the city. Impressed by her boldness, Ginger drops the complaint and agrees to address the dancers’ concerns. Hoffman sets a trap for Jimmy, correctly guessing he’s corrupt. He and Grey realise that they need Dex to help them with Grey’s plan to buy the rest of the heroin.
