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 knew it was about time to see this show on the TNT scheduled. when it didn’t show up, I googled to find out why…what a disappoint it is it find out it’s canceled.
a smart, series with a different twist. I really liked it. This one was a total keeper. I hate the way things are pulled before getting a chance to find an audience

My husband and I loved this show are are so sorry that it has been cancelled. I think that if they renewed it, it would be watched. I agree with S. Gula; given a decent time slot they would do a lot better.

You have a good series than you go and cancel it! Not to smart!!


Gary Carrier June 9, 2014 at 8:21 pm

you put a good show on and give it one season what are you guys nuts fire some of your highly paid experts


S. Gula June 10, 2014 at 9:11 am

You are totally right. They pay these people loads of money to come up with shos to air on TV. All they do is retread bad ideas and realty shows. Maxwell and King given a decent tome slot would be a solidly watched show. People forget that Monk fist started on ABC but those bozos didn’t like the ratings and dropped it. USA picked it up and it ran for seven or eight seasons.
