TNT orders Shane Brennan private eye drama to series

Procedural stars Jon Tenney, Rebecca Romijn as detectives

TNT is adding a new procedural to the mix, greenlighting the formerly titled “King and Maxwell” pilot to series.

Skein, based on characters from author David Baldacci, will star Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn as a pair of detectives who are former Secret Service agents.

Show is from CBS Television Studios and will premiere in the summer. Writer and “NCIS: Los Angeles” showrunner Shane Brennan will exec produce with Grant Anderson. Baldacci will serve as a consultant.

Co-stars include Michael O’Keefe, Chris Butler and Ryan Hurst, who was a regular on FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” before his character was killed this past season.

Baldacci introduced the characters of King and Maxwell, played by Tenney and Romijn, in his 2003 bestseller “Split Second.”

TNT has another procedural pilot, Jerry Bruckheimer-produced “Trooper” with Mira Sorvino, in play, but its chances of going forward are nearly nonexistent now since the Baldacci project has been picked up.

On the serialized side, TNT president Michael Wright will need to make a decision on pilots “The Last Ship,” produced by Michael Bay, or “Legends,” with Sean Bean and based on a novel by Robert Littell.
