Rashida Jones and partner Will McCormack (via their Warner Bros-based Le Train Train production company) has sold a half-hour comedy pilot to HBO, titled Claws, and is described as a dark workplace “dramedy-noir” about a nail salon in Florida and the strange, dangerous women who work there.
Rashida Jones Sells Dark, Noir Nail Salon-Set Dramedy To HBO
As someone who frequents nail salons, this sounds like something fresh. I can’t think of any TV series or movie set in a nail salon, that’s also a dark noir dramedy, following the strange, dangerous employees.
No exact plot details are available yet, however.
Marking next in a line in a string of projects Jones and McCormack have sold to various TV networks, Claws will be penned by Eliot Laurence, with Jeff Grosvenor producing for Warner Bros. TV, along with Jones and Mcormack, who will also exec produce.
