When you are planning on bringing a show starring Taye Diggs like Murder in the first to your screen, and you need to make room, you are even willing to axe a show starred by Rebecca Romijn, and that´s the case now, as TNT cancelled King & Maxwell after season one. The show was not getting ratings to rave about either, losing almost half of its lead-in eyeballs provided by Major Crimes.
Now, after the announcement that puts an end to King & Maxwell, the only question mark in TNT´s original lineup is regarding the future of Franklin & Bash, and a decision is expected soon.
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.
