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.

    This was a great series. Why do all the good shows get cancelled? Who makes these decisions? This show should be reconsidered and brought back for at least another season or 10.

    WHILE IT DIDNT GRAB MY ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY, I THOUGHT IT WAS THE KIND OF SHOW THAT WOULD GET BETTER WITH TIME…PLOTS AND ACTING WERE GOOD AND I ADORE JON TENNEY, WHO I THINK IS VERY UNDERRATED.

    I WOULD LOVE TO SEE “KING & MAXWELL” RETURN, BUT FAILING THAT, GIVE US LOTS MORE OF JON TENNEY ( AND NOT JUST HIS ABBREVIATED APPEARANCES ON MAJOR CRIMES!)

    Please bring back this good series! Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn were perfect in the roles of King and Maxwell.

      I also hated to see the show canceled. Please bring it back on. It was one of the only shows worth watching. If tv shows don’t improve, I am really thinking about not watching any shows

    What a bummer. Yet another good show that is cancelled. Truly a disappointment given the wasteland that is the new shows this summer.

    RENEW….NOW. What a bummer, I enjoyed the show and was one of the shows I was really looking forward to seeing again.

    I thought it was a great series, especially since it was based on a great series of mysteries and had such good actors! It should be on NOW!
