ABC's just-unveiled fall schedule may be a short on new series (you'll have to wait for midseason for more of those), but the three new shows that are premiering already have fans buzzing.
Watch the official trailers below:
Wednesdays at 10:00pm
Inspired by the spirited graphic novel, Stumptown follows Dex Parios, a sharp tongued, whip smart, down on her luck, making-it-up-as-she-goes-along, hot mess of a P.I., working in Portland, Oregon. It’s a distinct world populated by oddball characters where seemingly simple cases unfold with surprising turns, emotional stakes, and a healthy dose of humor. At its heart, our reluctant heroine solves other people’s messes with a blind eye toward her own. Dex usually gets it right … but not until all other options have been exhausted.
Pilot Cast: Cobie Smulders, Michael Ealy, Camryn Manheim, Mark Webber, Adrian Martinez.
