"King & Maxwell" on TNT is a private-eye drama series that is based on David Baldacci's popular characters Sean King and Michelle Maxwell.

Sean King (Jon Tenney, "The Closer") and Michelle Maxwell (Rebecca Romijn, "X-Men") aren't your typical pair of private investigators. Both are former Secret Service agents, and their unique skills — not to mention their razor-sharp chemistry — often give them a leg up on suspects and conventional law enforcement.

With her striking beauty, athletic prowess and Beltway connections, Maxwell is a formidable investigator, determined to prove herself after being forced to resign from the Secret Service. King, a recovering alcoholic with a passion for romance novels, lost his job with the Secret Service when the presidential candidate he was assigned to protect was assassinated. Now, his background as a lawyer gives him a keen insight into the legal ins and outs necessary to do his job better than just about anyone.

The cast also includes Michael O'Keefe ("Michael Clayton") as Rigby and Chris Butler ("The Good Wife") as Carter, two FBI agents who occasionally cross paths with King and Maxwell. In addition, Ryan Hurst ("Sons of Anarchy," "Wanted") stars as Edgar Roy, a savant who helps King and Maxwell solve cases.

Baldacci, who has penned more than 25 novels, first introduced readers to Sean King and Michelle Maxwell in his 2003 bestseller "Split Second." The pair returned the following year in "Hour Game" and subsequently appeared in 2007's "Simple Genius," 2009's "First Family" and 2011's "The Sixth Man."

"King & Maxwell" is produced by CBS Television Studios. Shane Brennan ("NCIS: LA"), who penned the pilot, and Grant Anderson ("Third Watch") serve as executive producers, with Karen Spiegel ("Absolute Power") as producer. Baldacci is a consultant on the series.
