‘Claws’ Series Premiere — Watch Florida Based Dramedy Live Online, On Twitter, And Tweet With Cast [Video]

If you’re not watching the Tony Awards tonight and are up for a comedy, you might want to check out the series premiere of TNT’s Claws. Based in Central Florida’s Manatee County, Claws tells the story of Nail Artisan salon owner Desna and her four employees and how she gets caught up in a money-laundering scheme. The series premiere is getting a lot of online buzz, and TNT is going to air the pilot at 9 p.m. ET. At 10 p.m., TNT will air the full pilot episode on Twitter. This marks the first time TNT played a basic cable program on the social media platform. Here is the description of Claws as explained by TNT. You can also watch Claws when the premiere streams live on the TNT website.

“Claws is a midnight-dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness set in a South Florida nail salon. It follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous manicurists working at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County salon, where there is a lot more going on than silk wraps and pedicures. Claws is about good women caught in bad places with worse men. It’s the story of hardworking women trying to get by in this economy, set against the surreal, bright, gritty landscape of Florida and the luscious, absurd, extreme excesses of the crime world.”

Rashida Jones and writing partner Will McCormack co-produce Claws via their company Le Train Train. The team has a slew of writing and producing credits between them including the upcoming Toy Story 4, Celeste and Jesse Forever and A to Z. Additionally, Claws features an all-star cast that is a good indicator this show is going to be humorous and a hit.

The cast of Claws includes the following.

  • Niecy Nash as Desna (Reno 911, Getting On, Clean House, The Soul Man)
  • Jason Antoon as Dr. Ken Brickman (No Ordinary Family, Electric City, Famous in Love)
  • Jack Kesy as Roller (The Strain)
