Everything Rashida Jones touches seems to turn to comedic gold, including her current starring role in TBS’s “Angie Tribeca,” and now the “Parks and Recreation” alum will have a dramedy series at TNT.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the cable net gave a series order to Jones’ nail salon project “Claws.” Jones will produce the series, which is set to debut with a 10-episode season in 2017.
“Originally developed as a half-hour, single-camera comedy at HBO, hourlong dramedy ‘Claws’ is set in a South Florida nail salon,” THR reports. “It is described as a midnight-dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness that follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous Floridian manicurists in the traditionally male world of organized crime.”
The cast includes Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes and Harold Perrineau.
“The idea for ‘Claws’ was conceived by Eliot Laurence, who penned the pilot and will serve as co-executive producer,” THR notes.
