TNT Developing Shows From Tom Clancy, Matthew McConaughey and Nigel Lythgoe
TNT is developing 11 new series, including seven scripted shows and four unscripted projects, the network announced Wednesday.
King and Maxwell follows Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, two popular characters by best-selling author David Baldacci, who will serve as a consultant on the show. King and Maxwell are private investigators who were also former secret service agents.
Another best-selling author — Tom Clancy — will executive-produce Tom Clancy's Homeland Security, a procedural about a team of domestic intelligence operatives.
