Set in a South Florida nail salon, CLAWS is a midnight-dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness which follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous Florida manicurists at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County Salon, where there is a lot more going on than silk wraps and pedicures. At the center is salon owner Desna (Niecy Nash), who lives with and cares for her mentally ill twin brother, Dean (Harold Perrineau). Desna's staff includes best friend Jennifer (Jenn Lyon), a tenuously sober ex-party girl raising two children from previous relationships; Quiet Ann (Judy Reyes), Desna's enigmatic driver who also provides security for the salon; Polly (Carrie Preston), a mild-mannered preppy who recently served time in prison for identity theft; and Virginia (Karrueche Tran), who makes no effort to hide her boredom and impatience with her job.

Not at all what I expected...and that's a good thing
I expected over-the-top, sitcom humor. This had drama and a darkness I totally didnt expect. It made me want to see where it's going. Plus - come on...niecy nash. She can do no wrong!
Niecy Nash has her claws out!
Niecy Nash is back with Claws. This show is far better than I have ever anticipated. They are calling it a dramody. Which of course is a comedy and drama show all packed into one, this show has it all. This show has the making of being on premium channels like HBO and Showtime. Watch one episode and you will be hooked. That is a promise.
Now get your claws and grab that remote!
WOW! Was expecting less--this is AMAZING!
Can't believe how great the first episode was. Niecy Nash is such an incredible acto and she portrays a really interesting character in the first episode. And the outfits and scenery are so evocative of the flashy/trashy side of Florida. Plot way more intense than I thought it would be. Nice work!!!
