We had the wonderful opportunity of interviewing Rebecca Romijn and Jon Tenney about their new show King and Maxwell, premiering August 27th at 10 ET/PT on Showcase.
King and Maxwell is a procedural drama about two former CIA agents turned private investigators, Sean King (Jon Tenney) and Michelle Maxwell (Rebecca Romijn), who team up and work together to solve local crimes and happenings. They bring to the table their unique skill set, witty attitude and powerful chemistry to be one step ahead of both suspects and law enforcement officers.
