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 Grey with her on a trip to L.A., where she intends to help a struggling screenwriter, Camille Costas, expose an old colleague who stole her latest work, based on her uncle’s police career, and is turning it into a movie. Grey also discovers that Dex has a secondary motive: a letter from Maribel, her aunt who may know the whereabouts of her missing parents. Tookie, despite having been told specifically not to, rents out the Bad Alibi for Hoffman’s mother’s birthday party.
Ansel discovers Grey’s antique pistol is missing from his office (it later turns out Grey put it storage for safekeeping). Dex gets a copy of the script and proves it was plagiarised, but her rented apartment is burned down before she can finalize a deal. She has Grey spread rumors that she has video evidence, allowing her to set up a sting and catch the washed-up actor hired to try and kill her. The producers give in and agree to all of Camille’s demands. Grey meets his long lost father, who has started a new family, and finds the closure he has long sought. Dex goes to see Maribel, who reveals that her parents may have abandoned her and Ansel to protect them.
