If you haven’t seen TNT’s latest series, Claws, then turn back now. There are a few spoilers ahead that you may want to avoid. 

The series stars Niecy Nash as the leader of a ragtag team of boss women at a nail salon, running a drug front in Florida. Nash’s character, Desna, initially has an enemy in Virginia (Karrueche Tran), but things quickly turn around, placing the two on the same side of a big problem. 

You’ll recognize other famous faces in the series, which has Rashida Jones attached as executive producer. Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris cuts an intimidating figure as Uncle Daddy. Quiet Ann, played by Judy Reyes, is the silent and loyal muscle of Desna’s group. And, True Blood’s Carrie Preston plays Polly, Desna’s bestie fresh from jail. 

Check out the video to find out why Claws is a must-watch TV hit.
