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.

Sorry I Just finished watching the DVD of Season 1 and just found out there is no season 2.

Perhaps some local network producer will wise up and pick it up, like they did JAG!

There was some good adult writing on this show!

I liked this show, and would like to see it renewed. It was different from other PI type shows.

I see that Rebecca Romijn is on the new series The Librarian. But I still miss King & Maxwell.

So many poor programs on TV, so few from which to choose to enjoy and this is cancelled ! Outrageous. Renew. Advertise more. Bring it back.

Great show and charaters


Mari December 9, 2014 at 12:01 am

Love that show


Valerie December 6, 2014 at 4:18 pm

King and Maxwell is great! There was never any question in my mind that it would be renewed. I can’t believe that something that was so clever and enjoyable has been cancelled. It should be renewed immediately! It’s hard to believe the way these stations cut off their nose to spite their face. And anyway, I belive that they have lost Rebecca to the Librarians.

Bring back King and Maxwell….good as Castle


Mike November 14, 2014 at 12:54 am

Hey I loved it, can’t wait for more. Hope someone can put it back together.

RENEW! RENEW! I loved the show and the characters.


Mira October 4, 2014 at 3:25 pm

Renew – seriously loved this show – so of course it got cancelled – the networks seem to have a knack for cancelling any half-way decent show so if it is actually good – as this one was – it was guaranteed to be cancelled.


KAREN September 29, 2014 at 6:58 pm

I’ve been waiting for this show to come back with new episodes. Love this show’s characters and plot lines. Hope it comes back somehow. I want to see more

Should have renewed much better than some of the stuff TNT tries to promote.


Roxanne September 20, 2014 at 8:08 pm

Renew. Great show. Love all the characters. But I missed the last show.


Naomi September 16, 2014 at 11:40 pm

My husband and I loved the King and Maxwell series. David Baldacci is one of my favorite authors. I cannot believe they would cancel this show.


Martha September 15, 2014 at 3:32 pm

Seriously? You, TNT, are keeping a pro-violent show like “Murder in the First” rather than “King and Maxwell”? What are you thinking? I, for one, do not want more violence on TV. Why encourage crime and how to do it better? If we make criminals smarter, then they will know how to “Get Away With Murder” as ABC is proposing this fall. I think I’ll just turn off the TV and go back to reading.
