*Karrueche Tran has signed on for the dramedy pilot “Claws,” the TNT nail salon-set pilot executive-produced by Le Train Train’s Rashida Jones and Will McCormack and starring Niecy Nash, Harold Perrineau and Jenn Lyon.
“Claws” follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous manicurists at Florida’s Nail Artisan of Manatee County salon.
Perrineau will play Dean, the mentally-ill twin brother of Nash’s Desna, the salon owner at the center of the series. They have love for each other and share a raggedy apartment, from which Dean dreams of the good life.
Lyon plays Desna’s best friend and co-worker, Jennifer, a reformed party girl 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.
Tran will play Virginia, a manicurist with an attitude who has been filling in at the salon and makes no effort to hide her boredom and impatience with the job.
Janine Sherman Barrois serves as executive producer and Nicole Kassell will direct the pilot for Warner Horizon Television and TNT Original Productions.
