Pilot Watch: Cobie Smulders Returns to TV in ABC Drama Based on “Stumptown” Graphic Novels

How I Met Your Mother and Avengers co-star Cobie Smulders is set to return to television in one of ABC’s buzziest pilots of the pilot season.

Based on the “Stumptown” graphic novels, the yet to be titled P.I. drama follows Dex Parios (Smulders) as a strong and witty detective dealing with complications with her love life, gambling debt, and taking care of her brother, Ansel (Cole Sibus).

Being an army veteran, Dex’s P.I. skills come from her years as an intelligence officer in the army. The ways she handles her cases puts her directly in the crossfire of criminals as well as the police.

This is ABC’s second overall pilot pickup for the 2019-2020 season. The network has already picked up mixed-ish to series.
