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.

    I really enjoyed this show. You all keep cancelling new shows before you even give them a fair chance. Then we are left hanging. I don’t want to see this show cancelled.
    Thank you

    I just watched episode 10. I am so sad the series is cancelled. All of the characters were great. The independence and the loyalty between King & Maxwell is not something you see in other detective shows. Other commenters are correct please keep this show and take off some of those reality shows.

    It behooves me to comprehend how a network cannot see a probable and successful program, when you see one. Perhaps, not enough viewers were aware of its day and time. Please, don’t ‘shoot yourself in the foot’.

    My husband and I loved this show! We are very dissapointed that it was cancelled, we enjoyed the characters immensely, please bring it back Ted.

    I am so very disappointed, I really enjoyed the show and was looking forward to having it back again. What are they thinking? They keep trash reality shows and not this.

  8. Janet Gordon says

    So sorry it will be gone, we enjoyed it so much. Not just the main characters, but the Edgar was the bomb–so were Rigby & Carter–and also the techy who was Edgar’s sidekick!
