TNT has picked up a new series from NCIS: LA showrunner Shane Brennan centered on two former Secret Service agents-turned-private investigators, Deadline reports.
The untitled series, starring Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn, received a 10-episode order and is set to premiere some time this summer. Adapted from characters by bes-tselling author David Baldacci, the show follows Sean King (Tenney) and Michelle Maxwell (Romijn), whose unique skills and strong chemistry gives them a leg up on the police when it comes to finding the bad guys;. The pilot co-stars Michael O'Keefe (Michael Clayton) and Chris Butler, who recurs on The Good Wife, as two FBI agents who occasionally cross paths with King and Maxwell.
