TNT is already thinking about the summer and the specialty channel has released first look previews for three of its summer shows — new series WILL and CLAWS, as well as for season 2 of ANIMAL KINGDOM.
CLAWS. CLAWS is “a midnight-dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness set in a South Florida nail salon. Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Jenn Lyon, Judy Reyes, Jack Kesy, Karrueche Tran, Kevin Rankin, Jason Antoon, Harold Perrineau and Dean Norris star in the hour-long dramedy that follows the rise of five diverse and treacherous manicurists working at the Nail Artisan of Manatee County salon, where there is a lot more going on than silk wraps and pedicures.”
WILL. This new series is a twist on the story of William Shakespeare. Newcomer Laurie Davidson plays the title role in this “period drama told in a bold, contemporary style and played to a modern soundtrack that exposes all of Shakespeare’s recklessness, lustful temptations and tortured brilliance.” Also starring are Olivia DeJonge, Ewen Bremner, Colm Meaney, Mattias Inwood, Jamie Campbell Bower, William Houston, Lukas Rolfe, Max Bennett and Jasmin Savoy Brown.
ANIMAL KINGDOM (Season 2). “The Codys are back, and the ties that bind them are about to be stretched to the limit when TNT’s scorching hit Animal Kingdom returns for its second season. One of cable’s Top 5 new dramas this past summer, the series about a Southern California crime family stars Emmy and Tony winner Ellen Barkin as the matriarch of the Cody clan, Scott Speedman as her second in command and Shawn Hatosy as her volatile, mentally unstable eldest son.” Also starring are Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, Molly Gordon and Carolina Guerra.
