TV Plus (South Africa) - - DRAMA -

Claws Sea­son 1 Tues­days (from 22 Au­gust) Vuzu AMP (*103) 21:00

Flashy, trashy and set in that sun­stunned id­iot-breed­ing ground of Florida, Claws (2017- cur­rent) is the new nail sa­lon-cen­tred darkly comic drama that’s go­ing to chal­lenge your man­i­cure. Like the fin­gers on a hand, Claws’ five ladies may each be do­ing their own thing, but stand against them and th­ese rock-solid friends will come to­gether in a fist and knock you out!

1 VIR­GINIA LOC (Kar­rueche Tran) Why is she pressed? Vir­ginia is one of Un­cle Daddy’s ex-hook­ers (as well as Roller’s mis­tress) who’s been fill­ing in at the sa­lon while Polly “was away”. The sa­lon girls still haven’t ac­cepted her as one of their own… un­til she steps in to help Desna get away with mur­der. You know her! Kar­rueche was singer Chris Brown’s girl­friend but now has a five-year re­strain­ing or­der against him.

2 POLLY (Car­rie Pre­ston) Why is she pressed? Sweet-as-pie South­ern girl Polly is fresh out of jail for iden­tity theft and rip­ping off old folks, so now this ca­reer con artist has to keep her pointy lit­tle nose clean. She a ride-or-die friend when it comes to Desna. You know her! Car­rie is kooky lawyer Els­beth Tas­cioni in The Good Wife (20102016) and Good Fight (2017-cur­rent).

3 DESNA SIMMS (Niecy Nash) Why is she pressed? To raise enough money to buy her own sa­lon and care for her bril­liant, autis­tic brother Dean (Harold Per­rineau), abused for­mer fos­ter child Desna is laun­der­ing money for a lo­cal gang­ster named Un­cle Daddy (Dean Nor­ris) and his son – her lover Roller (Jack Kesy). You know her! Niecy was glo­ri­ous Denise Hem­phill in Scream Queens (2015-2016)

5 JEN­NIFER HUSSER (Jenn Lyon) Why is she pressed? This mom and ex-party girl is Desna’s bestie who is mar­ried to Roller’s newly sober life­coach brother Bryce (Kevin Rankin). You know her! Jenn was Lind­sey Salazar in Jus­ti­fied (2012-2013).

5 QUIET ANN (Judy Reyes) Why is she pressed? Base­ball batwield­ing Ann is the sa­lon’s bouncer and she takes non­sense from a man. She wouldn’t mind a lit­tle non­sense from the ladies though… You know her! Judy Reyes was De­vi­ous Maids’ Zoila (2013-2016).

Th­ese ladies aren’t afraid to get their claws dirty!
