TV show description:
This TV series is based on the best-selling books by author David Baldacci.

Sean King (Jon Tenney) and Michelle Maxwell (Rebecca Romijn) are unusual private investigators. Both of them used to be Secret Service agents, and their unique skills (not to mention their razor-sharp chemistry) give them a leg up on conventional law enforcement.

Maxwell is a former elite athlete who uses her brains, beauty and Beltway connections to solve cases. King’s career in the Secret Service ended when the presidential candidate he was assigned to protect was assassinated, sending him on a downward spiral.

Now, King has added a law degree to his arsenal of skills, allowing him to navigate the system in ways that a typical private investigator never could. Along the way, King and Maxwell clash over just about everything — from her garbage-strewn car to his love of wine over beer.

FBI Special Agents Rigby (Michael O’Keefe) and Carter (Chris Butler) frequently clash with King and Maxwell over their less-than-legal methods. Rigby is a veteran FBI agent with many years on the force and he always follows the rules, sticks to the facts and questions anyone who stands between him and the truth.

Carter is Agent Rigby’s junior partner and will likely go far in the agency. He works with whoever can help solve a case -– either standard law-enforcement organizations, like the police, or unconventional resources, like private investigators.

Helping the King and Maxwell team is Edgar Roy (Ryan Hurst). He joined their team after Sean King served as his lawyer during his highly publicized criminal case. Edgar is a high-functioning autistic savant who specializes in patterns and numerical sequences. He has certain work-space requirements, like sitting at a “friendly” desk and enjoying soup for lunch on Mondays.

Series Finale

Episode #10 — Pandora’s Box
Sean’s investigation of the Ritter assassination threatens to end his partnership with Michelle as she considers returning to the Secret Service. The shocking truth sends Sean back to the scene of the crime to prevent history from repeating itself.
First aired: August 12, 2013.

FYI: Jon Tenney has returned to Major Crimes, formerly The Closer. His character is the same but is retire from the FBI to become a permanent member of the Major Crimes unit.

Yes Jon Tenney has returned to Major Crimes and he had a heart attack in a recent show. I am hoping that they are going to give him an exit and return to King and Maxwell. I think that Major Crimes is doing well without him surprisingly. It is just weird with him on the show without Brenda.

Loved this show. Please bring it back with all the same cast.

I agree full heartedly!

Loved King and Maxwell. If something must be cancelled how about The Last Ship, It
is stupid. I watched the first episode and couldn’t get through it to the end. King
and Maxwell is cute, very watchable and Jon Tenny is hot. Wish he would shave though. Please, please, please bring it back.


Sandra August 17, 2014 at 10:59 am

I haven’t even heard of The Last Ship! I agree that Jon Tenney would look better shaved.

I agree with the others. It is a very good show: interesting & entertaining. Thoroughly enjoyed King, Maxwell & Edgar. There is so much on tv that is ridiculous, such as all those boring reality shows & then something with content & good acting is cancelled. It is getting harder & harder to find something to watch. Thankfully, I am an avid reader & can be entertained without tv. I’ll just read more David Baldacci books.
