Claws, TNT Dramedy from Executive Producer Rashida Jones, Airs Sunday
Claws, a dramedy set in a Florida nail salon, premiers Sunday on TNT. The Nail Artisan of Manatee County salon in South Florida is where the five protagonists of Claws work.
Neicy Nash stars as the owner of the salon, Desna. Desna cares for her twin brother Dean, who suffers from mental illness. A diverse group of women make up the staff at the Nail Artisan, newly sober, single mother of two and Desna’s best friend Jennifer, Quiet Ann, Polly, and Virginia.
The salon handles manicures, pedicures, and…money-laundering.
Variety reported “‘Claws’ is wild and hilarious, and we can’t wait for viewers to immerse themselves in this fascinating world,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. “This is a show with great storytelling featuring empowered female characters and brought to life by a diverse group of incredibly talented individuals both in front of and behind the camera.”
