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 bestselling 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.
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 cross 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 written 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.
