TNT Greenlights New Private-Eye Series
Starring Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn

Series Based on David Baldacci's Popular Characters
Sean King and Michelle Maxwell

TNT has given the greenlight to a new untitled private-eye drama starring Jon Tenney (The Closer) and Rebecca Romijn (X-Men) and based on bestselli ng author David Baldacci's popular characters Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. TNT has ordered 10 episodes of the series, which is being 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, which is slated to premiere in summer 2013.

Sean King (Tenney) and Michelle Maxwell (Romijn) 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 alco holic 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 untitled private-eye drama also stars Michael O'Keefe (Michael Clayton) as Rigby and Chris Butler (The Good Wife) as Carter, two FBI agents who occasionally cr oss paths with King and Maxwell. In addition, Ryan Hurst (Sons of Anarchy, TNT's 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 a nd subsequently appeared in 2007's Simple Genius, 2009's First Family and 2011's The Sixth Man.

    I love the books, so i’m looking forward to this!

    Nice to see Rebecca Romijn giving a TV show another shot. After Eastwick was canned I thought she’d move back into movies… hope this one works out for her this time.

    Shows like this always depend on great writing and great acting in order to become a hit… so I hope it all works out! I’ll tune in for the first few eps when it airs and see how it goes!

    The next Hart to Hart with Stefanie Powers

  • USAmerica1st

    Sweet! Hope it’s a good one.

  • Jon

    I imagine it’ll be paired with either Major Crimes or Rizolli and Isles.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Might be worth checking out for Rebecca if no other reason.

    JT is playing another alcoholic law enforcement officer a la The Closer? lol I agree, this could be a very nice pair up with R & I. (I wonder if he will still do guest spots on Major Crimes?)
