For some actors, knowing as much about their characters—and having it on the page—is key. But for STUMPTOWN’s Michael Ealy, who plays Detective Miles Hoffman on the new ABC drama, he was drawn in by what he didn’t know about his character…and the show as a whole. But what he did know?

UNTITLED COBIE SMULDERS PROJECT – “Pilot” (ABC/David Bukach)
COBIE SMULDERS

ABC has ordered a Cobie Smulders-led STUMPTOWN adaptation to series.

Per ABC, “Based on the STUMPTOWN graphic novel series, Untitled Cobie Smulders Project follows Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders) as a strong, assertive, and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt, and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great P.I., but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police. Writer Jason Richman produces with Ruben Fleischer and David Bernad (The District), Greg Rucka (author of the “Stumptown” graphic novel series), Matthew Southworth, and Justin Greenwood (illustrators of the “Stumptown” graphic novel series). James Griffiths directed the pilot. Produced by ABC Studios. ABC Studios is a part of Disney Television Studios, a collection of studios comprised of 20th Century Fox Television, ABC Studios and Fox 21 Television Studios.”
