Written by Jason Richman, the series has been adapted from the graphic novel series of the same name created by Greg Rucka.

The series is set in Stumptown, a nickname for the city of Portland, and focuses on quick-witted former army veteran turned private investigator Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders), who is suffering from PTSD.

Parios deals with the cases that the police can’t get involved in and her intelligence and drive to do the right thing sees her excel at her job, but her reckless nature and tendency to ignore the rules frequently gets her into trouble.
