Claws is an American drama television series that premiered on TNT on June 11, 2017. In Manatee County, Florida, manicurist Desna Simms launders money from selling painkillers for her boyfriend Roller, the nephew of bi-sexual Dixie Mafia boss Clay “Uncle Daddy” Husser, through her Nail Artisans salon. She hopes to save enough money to buy a nicer salon and a house where she can better care for her autistic brother, Dean. One of her colleagues, Polly, has just been paroled for fraud and joins Desna and her friends at a New Year’s Day celebration at Clay’s bar, “She She’s”, a transsexual strip club. Pleased with Roller’s success as a dealer, Clay gives him a larger cut of the profits. Desna discovers that Clay has reneged on a substantial bonus he had promised her, and she confronts Roller, but he refuses to help her.
Furthermore, he insists that she fire Polly and permanently replace her with his mistress Virginia, who Desna regards as nothing more than a freeloading whore. Instead, she and her crew assault Virginia and publicly humiliate her. The stress convinces her to split her cut with the girls, the only ones she can really trust. Later, during a visit to Roller’s house, Desna snaps, attacks Roller and tries to drown him. He gains the upper hand and starts to choke Desna, but is subsequently shot dead by Virginia.
