In the show, Sean King (Tenney) and Michelle Maxwell (Romijn) aren't your typical private investigators. Both are former 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. Today, King has added a law degree to his arsenal of skills, allowing him to navigate the system in ways a typical private investigator never could. Along the way, King and Maxwell clash over everything, from her garbage-strewn car to his love of wine over beer.
King & Maxwell also starred Michael O'Keefe (Michael Clayton) and Chris Butler (The Good Wife) as F.B.I. Special Agents Rigby and Carter, who clash with King and Maxwell over their less-than-legal methods. In addition, Ryan Hurst (Sons of Anarchy, TNT's Wanted) starred as Edgar Roy.
King & Maxwell was produced by CBS Television Studios, in association with Shane Brennan Productions. Shane Brennan (NCIS: Los Angeles), who developed the series and penned the pilot, served as Executive Producer, alongside Grant Anderson (Third Watch) and Chris Downey (Leverage). Karen Spiegel (Absolute Power) served as producer and David Baldacci as series consultant.
