See Niecy Nash in new teaser for TNT's nail salon dramedy Claws
TNT is breaking out its Claws.
The network has released a new teaser trailer Claws, a new dramedy from executive producer Rashida Jones that follows the five women who work at a nail salon in South Florida.
The series stars Niecy Nash as the salon’s owner Desna, who we hear in the short clip above promising to take care of all of her staff, which includes: mild-mannered Polly (Carrie Preston), who recently served time for identity theft; newly sober ex-party girl Jennifer (Jenn Lyon); Quiet Ann (Judy Reyes), the salon’s security guard; and Virginia (Karrueche Tran), who finds her job rather boring.
However, the shots of money and prescriptions pads in the teaser let us know that the salon is mixed up in some stuff that goes beyond pedicures. Desna’s salon is used to launder the profits of an illegal pain clinic run by the gangster Roller (Jack Kesy).
The show also stars Lost‘s Harold Perrineau as Desna’s mentally ill twin brother, Kevin Rankin (Friday Night Lights) as Jennifer’s husband, and Jason Antoon as a doctor who works at an illegal drug clinic. Jones will executive produce the series alongside Will McCormack (A to Z), and Janine Sherman Barrois (ER), who also serves as showrunner.
Watch the teaser above.
The 10-episode first season premieres summer 2017 on TNT.
