TNT turns David Baldacci's detectives into series
Posted January 15, 2013
The Closer is over, but fans of Jon Tenney, who played Brenda Lee Johnson's patient hubby Fritz Howard, will be happy to hear that TNT has given the go-ahead to an untitled private-eye drama starring Tenney and Rebecca Romijn (X-Men).
The crime drama will be based on best-selling author David Baldacci's popular characters Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. Baldacci is a consultant on the 10-episode series, which is being produced by CBS Television Studios. It's slated to premiere this summer.
Tenney and Romjin star as former Secret Service agents who now solve crimes. King is a recovering alcoholic who resigned after the presidential candidate he was assigned to protect is assassinated. Maxwell is a former agent also forced to resign and who now has an unstoppable need to prove herself.
The untitled private-eye drama also stars Michael O'Keefe (Michael Clayton) and Chris Butler (The Good Wife) as FBI agents who cross paths with King and Maxwell. Ryan Hurst (Sons of Anarchy ) also stars.
Baldacci has written more than two dozen novels and first introduced readers to Sean King and Michelle Maxwell in his 2003 best seller Split Second. They also appeared the following year in Hour Game and later in 2007's Simple Genius, 2009's First Family and 2011's The Sixth Man.
