Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Rashida Jones, Will McCormack and series showrunner Janine Sherman Barrois, CLAWS is a one-hour dramedy series set in the Nail Artisan salon in Manatee County, Florida, revealing the lives and crimes of the five women who work there. Desna Simms, the owner of the salon, lives and works with her mentally ill twin brother Dean, and has a driver named Quiet Ann who also provides security at the salon. The other staff at the salon include: Desna's best friend Jennifer -- a former hard partier now tenuously sober and a married mother of two young girls -- who deeply loves her family but sometimes feels trapped; mild-mannered Polly, who has recently been released from prison, where she did time for identity theft on seniors; and Virginia, who has been filling in at the nail salon, making no effort to hide her boredom and impatience with the job. Adding chaos to the Nail Artisan mix is Roller, a gangstered-out redneck who runs a barely legal pain clinic and uses Desna's nail salon to launder their obscene profits; Bryce, Jennifer's husband who is also newly sober and trying to stay legit by working as an abundance coach; and Dr. Ken Brickman, a bona fide doctor at a decidedly un-bona fide and illegal drug clinic. On Thursday, May 25, 2017 at Midnight ET/9pm PT, TNT premiered a one-hour sneak peek of CLAWS, immediately following INSIDE THE NBA after Game 5 of the NBA EASTERN CONFERENCE FINALS, featuring the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD. The opinions I share are my own.

On Tuesday, April 17, 2018 Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released CLAWS: The Complete First Season on DVD includes all 10 "nail biting" episodes. Buckle up and enjoy all of the twists and turns of this wickedly funny one-hour dramedy. 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. We loved this series and you will too. Buy and binge now! (Click the red "Buy DVDs" button on this page.)
