Claws Location
Posted by
The dark comedy from TNT, about a group of manicurists women who get involved in a money laundering business, is back for season 2. During the 10 first episodes of Claws, they managed to survive in the male world of the criminal mafia.

Some of the members of the cast are Niecy Nash (the owner of the salon), Dean Norris (giving the Breaking Bad touch to the production), Carrie Preston (True Blood) or Jason Antoon (Minority Report).

The show is Set in Palmetto, although most of the filming in Florida was done in and around Sarasota. Claws was basically filmed in New Orleans due to the lack of state tax incentives in the Sunshine State:
