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. I loved the characters and the actors playing. What happened? I came across this show on its second episode. I don’t think there was much hype for its airing. I still haven’t seen the first episode. Why do networks cancel shows without giving them a chance to catch on???? Any chance at all that it might return for summer 2014?

    This was a good show. The networks are foolish for not giving a show time to gather an audience. M.A.S.H. and Cheers, two very successful shows, were not very popular for the first few seasons, but look where they went. Too many good shows are being tossed aside while the powers that be keep crap like Honey Boo Boo and the Kardashians.

    It is a shame they have cancelled King and Maxwell. Seems like every time a good show comes on it gets the ax. Seems like if a show isn’t all blood and gore it doesn’t stay. The books are great too.
