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.

I really liked this show. Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn had just the right amount of chemistry to like them. I loved Edgar. The show had just amount of action and doesn’t go overboard with the blood and the action.

TNT plasters, Rizzoli & Isles, Dallas, and Major Crimes all the time, but who ever wrote that they didn’t advertise KING & MAXWELL right, they didn’t let the public decide if they liked it or not.

I just gave up on LEGENDS. Too much violence. I am not crazy about MURDER IN THE FIRST. Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson just don’t have the chemistry that Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn had in KING & MAXWELL.

I thoroughly enjoyed King and Maxwell with Jon Tunney and Rebecca Romijn, they are just awesome together! I have read a couple of David Baldacci’s novels involving the pair and the books are super and the shows were spectacular as is their chemistry! I love seeing strong female role models and Rebecca is just perfect for the part. We need more shows of this caliber!

I agree with the others. It is a very good show: interesting & entertaining. Thoroughly enjoyed King, Maxwell & Edgar. Great cast of characters. There was not enough media attention of number of episodes to build ratings. What is wrong with this picture?

TV has so much boring stupid filler that is ridiculous, such as all those boring reality shows. Save money and dumb down America. Yea that’s a good idea.

This program had mental meat and entertainment with content & good acting and is cancelled after 6 brief episodes. TNT missed the mark on this one. I’ll just read more David Baldacci books.

They didn’t give this show a chance. Some shows “come out of the gate” with heavy advertising and support. It seems like others never garner network support and are doomed from the start. It was a great show with a lot of potential they didn’t have a chance to develop. I’m to the point I hate to invest time in any show because of the likelihood of cancellation. As to you Last Ship critics, I’m not sure why you pulled that particular comparison out of thin air, but I don’t agree. I think it’s a wonderful show too, and I’ve watched every episode. What’s not to like? If you must bash a show that survived, how about one of the silly reality shows or the predictable, pointless sitcoms. Now that’s a target rich environment.

I agree with you Linda B. what’s up with these ridiculous reality shows. I guess if you don’t want to think, you like them. It’s getting old real quick.

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.
Yippee!!

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 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.

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.
