Harold Perrineau and Jenn Lyon to Join TNT's Nail Salon Dramedy Pilot "Claws," From Warner Horizon Television and TNT Original Productions

Janine Sherman Barrois Tapped as Executive Producer/Showrunner, and Nicole Kassell Will Direct Pilot from Script by Co-Executive Producer Eliot Laurence

TNT, a division of Turner, has cast Harold Perrineau (The Matrix trilogy, Lost, OZ) and Jenn Lyon (Justified) in the dramedy pilot Claws, from Warner Horizon Television. They join the previously announced Niecy Nash (Getting On, The Soul Man) in the project, which is being executive-produced by Le Train Train's Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (Toy Story 4, Celeste and Jesse Forever, A to Z), and written by co-executive producer Eliot Laurence (Welcome to Me). Janine Sherman Barrois (ER, Criminal Minds) is set to executive-produce, and Nicole Kassell (The Americans, Better Call Saul, The Woodsman, The Killing, American Crime) will direct t he pilot.

Claws is a wickedly funny, midnight-dark meditation on female badness which follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous Florida manicurists. We will soon find out there is more going on at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County salon than silk wraps and pedicures.

Perrineau has been cast in the series regular role of Dean, the mentally ill twin brother of Nash's Desna, the owner of the nail salon at the center of the series. He and Desna adore each other, and he relies on her for everything. They also share a crappy apartment, from which Dean dreams of the good life.

Lyon will take the series regular role of Desna's best friend and co-worker, Jennifer. A former hard partier who is now tenuously sober, Jennifer is a married mother of two young girls who deeply loves her husband and kids, but sometimes feels trapped.

Claws comes to TNT from Le Train Train in association with Warner Horizon Television and TNT Original Productions.
