British crime drama channel, Alibi, has acquired American crime drama, Stumptown.
The series was adapted for TV after the success of the 2009 graphic novel series of the same name.
Stumptown, a nickname for the city of Portland where the series is set, follows the life of Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders), a former army veteran turned private investigator, solving 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.
