LOS ANGELES - TNT has ordered a pilot for “Claws,” an hour-long scripted dramedy set in a Southern Florida nail salon.
Executive-produced by Le Train Train’s Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (“Toy Story 4,” “Celeste and Jesse Forever,” “A to Z”), “Claws” is from Le Train Train in association with Warner Horizon Television and TNT Original Productions, and is written by co-executive producer Eliot Laurence (“Welcome to Me”).
“Claws” is a midnight-dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness which follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous Florida manicurists in the traditionally male world of organized crime. We will soon find out there is a lot more going on at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County salon than silk wraps and pedicures.
“Claws” marks Jones' second project for Turner this year. She can currently be seen on TNT's sister network TBS in the new cop show parody “Angie Tribeca,” in which she plays the title role and serves as producer.
Warner Horizon Television (WHTV) is one of the entertainment industry’s leading producers of scripted series for the cable and on-demand marketplace, and primetime reality series for both network and cable. A division of the Warner Bros. Television Group, WHTV was founded in 2006.
