Karrueche Tran and Niecy Nash are set to co-star in a pilot for TNT’s newest drama “Claws”. The scripted show is “a dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness that follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous Florida manicurists in the traditionally male world of organized crime”. Executive produced by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack’s Le Train Train, the show was originally set as a half-hour comedy for HBO but was scooped by TNT and redeveloped into an hour-long dramedy.
Karrueche will play manicurist Virginia who has been filling in at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County salon and makes no effort to hide her boredom and impatience with the job. Niecy will play salon owner Desna Simms who shares an apartment with her mentally ill twin brother Dean, played by Harold Perrineau.
No word on an air date yet, but can’t wait to see how this pans out. Funny lady Niecy is a seasoned actress who recently starred in Scream Queens and. Karrueche is sharpening her acting chops after scoring roles in Relationship Status and 3-Headed Shark Attack and her Emmy-winning production The Bay.
