Deadline reported, Cobie Smulders (Avengers & How I Met Your Mother) has been cast as the lead star in the TV adaptation of comic series ‘Stumptown’ for ABC.
Smulders will star as Dex Parios, a private-investigator veteran in Portland who has been described, “with a complicated personal history and only herself to rely on, she solves other people’s messes with a blind eye toward her own.”
Jason Richman, Ruben Fleischer are teaming up with ABC Studios for this drama pilot.
Smulders’ Dex is a whip-smart, hard-luck heroine you can’t help but get behind. Once a decorated Military Intelligence officer overseas, Dex is now back home in Portland, Oregon, unable to hold down a steady job, spinning her wheels, running up gambling debts, waiting for trouble to catch up with her — and so it does.
