Watch King & Maxwell
- 1 Season
When a presidential candidate is shot on the watch of Secret Service Agent Sean King it was the start of a new beginning of sorts. Realizing that having a presidential candidate shot during a major voting campaign was enough to end his career, King decides to become a private detective. Much to his chagrin he is not the only one to be fired from the Secret Service, Michelle Maxwell who was fired a year earlier joins up with Maxwell in his business venture. When these two opposites come together one would think a partnership like this wouldn't last very long, however, it does. Maxwell helps to clear the name of an autistic savant named Edgar who was falsely suspected of being a serial murderer. King was hesitant to work, because he had no knowledge of Maxwell's offer with Edgar until he helped solve a case that had complex puzzles involving numerical codes and computer technology. Edgar considers both King and Maxwell to be his friends and is a worthy ally in helping solve some very complex cases. Benny is the unofficial informer that gives out certain pieces of information about crimes that occur in the District of Columbia including the city of Washington. Other characters include FBI Agents Frank Rigby and Darius Carter who have the same type of working relationship both King and Maxwell when working cases. Frank Rigby is often thought of being hard to please, yet underneath he is the hard working tactical mind of a veteran field agent who helped solve a kidnapping case in West Virginia. Darius Carter being both African American and in law enforcement faced a lot of challenges that involved various degrees of veiled racism while working as a police officer. Although Rigby and Carter don't often agree on letting King investigating cases that might have Federal priorities, Carter can appreciate that treating people with respect is one tool in helping solve cases, a quality that he really admires in King as he helps ordinary people with very real problems in their lives.
