As a child, Shawn Spencer often wondered if there was a perfect crime. And she finally seems to meet him. How will he conduct the investigation? You can find out in the American series Jasno Agency (2006-2014), which will broadcast Television List every weekday from April 4 at 4:15 p.m.. Lovers of detective stories spiced up with humorous situations will have fun here, so you certainly won’t be bored.
The character of the main character excels in heightened observation skills and very good detective instincts. He has an extraordinarily well-developed eye for detail and photographic memory, which allows him to combine things that many people – including the police – do not lack. The lion’s share of Shawn’s extraordinary talents belong to his insidious father Henry, who nurtured them in his son from childhood.
Because Shawn finds himself suspect because of his “supernatural” abilities, he must play the part of the media and assist the police in the search based on his mysterious “visions”. To this end, he founded the occult detective agency Jasno and became a criminal adviser in Santa Barbara. His best friend (and reluctant partner) Burton “Gus” Guster helps him with the investigation.

The Jasno Agency blends detective novels with sweet humor and a light touch of the supernatural, and you’re sure to like lead character James Roday. Originally from San Antonio, Texas, he studied acting at New York University and began his career with several theater productions. He made his screen debut in 1999 in Coming Soon, in which he starred alongside Ryan Reynolds and Ashton Kutcher. The turning point in his career came with the role of Shawn Spencer in the series Agency Jasno.
Romance also took place during the filming of the series. Shawn’s rep has approached his co-worker Maggie Lawson, who plays police officer Julia “Jules” O’Hara. And it certainly wasn’t a vacation romance — they even moved into a shared apartment in Los Angeles and planned for the future. Their relationship seemed unshakable – but their co-workers also envied her and fans cheered her on. Long story short: The chemistry worked for them not only on screen, but in real life as well.
Maggie Lawson even returned to the stage in 2011, an important decision in her career. It is assumed that Roday himself made him take this bold step.
Therefore, everyone was shocked when, after seven years, in 2013, the popular couple announced their breakup. He too ran calmly and without any scandal that would haunt the boulevard. To date, fans have not found out what really happened between them and why they broke up. Replies have not yet been received, in any case Roday is still single and supposedly single. Since 2019, he has played one of the main roles in the series A Million Little Things.
It didn’t work for Gus either.
Shawn’s partner, Guse, is played by Dulé Hill, made famous by the series West Wing (1999-2006) before the Jasno agency. He played Charlie Young, the US President’s personal assistant, played by Martin Sheen. This sleepy-looking tap dancer and comedian was married to actress Nicole Lyn from 2004 to 2012, who will also appear in an episode of the Jasno Agency series. Actress Jazmyn Simon later became Hill’s next wife, but in 2018 the couple divorced. ■
