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.
Claws stars Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran, Jenn Lyon, Jack Kesy, Kevin Rankin, Jason Antoon, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Suleka Mathew, Harold Perrineau and Dean Norris.
TNT has announced the renewal of Claws (Sundays, 9/8C) for a second season.

It’s impossible to review Happyish without noting that the series was created as a showcase for the late Philip Seymour Hoffman – and that he helped develop it with creator Shalom Auslander. It almost didn’t happen after Hoffman died, but when Steve Coogan agreed to sign on, it was tweaked for him.
Sadly, it might have been better for all concerned if it had been laid to rest.
Showtime’s HAPPYish features a lead character who may not quite be happy, but is willing to settle for happy-ish.
To celebrate the series premiere of HAPPYish (Sunday, April 26th, 9:30/8:30C), Showtime is setting up life-sized snow globes in New York City and Los Angeles – where fans can find themselves engulfed in confetti like it’s their own personal parade in their own private happy-ish place.
Series guest star Carrie Preston (above, True Blood, Person of Interest) will be on hand at the New York location for photo ops and interviews.
For those who cannot be there in person, there will be a companion microsite – www.myHAPPYishPlace.com – that will allow fans to create their own photos of their happy-ish place. For more, follow the jump.
