The extraordinary ensemble cast of Major Crimes includes two-time Oscar(R) nominee Mary McDonnell as Los Angeles Police Captain Sharon Raydor, G.W. Bailey as Lieutenant Provenza, Tony Denison as Lieutenant Andy Flynn, Michael Paul Chan as Lieutenant Mike Tao, Raymond Cruz as Detective Julio Sanchez, Kearran Giovanni as Detective Amy Sykes, Phillip P.

About TNT's King & Maxwell

TNT's new private-eye drama King & Maxwell features Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn as bestselling author David Baldacci's popular characters Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. These two 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 Olympic 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. King & Maxwell also stars Michael O'Keefe and Chris Butler as F.B.I. Special Agents Rigby and Carter, who clash with King and Maxwell over their less-than-legal methods. In addition, Ryan Hurst stars as Edgar Roy.

King & Maxwell is produced by CBS Television Studios. Shane Brennan, Grant Anderson and Chris Downey serve as executive producers, with Karen Spiegel as producer and Baldacci as series consultant.
