UK preview and interview: David Baldacci on King & Maxwell

If you’re a fan of the hugely entertaining King & Maxwell series of thrillers from best-selling author and philanthropist David Baldacci, you’re either going to love the TV version starting tonight on Alibi, and which aired last year on TNT in the U.S. – or you’re going to return to your books muttering unprintable things under your breath. We like it, because they’ve taken the most important part of the book – the lead characters – and cast them well; we could watch Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn trade insults and insights every week with ease, whatever the case they’re on. Read the full review of the show and the interview with David Baldacci here.

King & Maxwell airs Wednesdays at 9 pm on the Alibi Channel.
