TNT has just announced that its new series Claws will be available to stream on Twitter for FREE once it launches Sunday, June 11 at 9 p.m. ET. With showrunner Janine Sherman Barrois at the helm and starring Niecy Nash, Karrueche Tran, Carrie Preston, Jenn Lyon and Judy Reyes, Claws follows five manicurists at the Nail Artisan Salon of Manatee County, Fla. The ladies enter the traditionally male world of organized crime when they begin laundering money for a neighboring pain clinic.
Twitter’s rebroadcasting of Claws is its second such collaboration with the Turner network. On April 29, Twitter streamed an encore of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’s Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner following the one-hour comedy special’s premiere on TBS.
Michael Engleman, Executive Vice President of Entertainment Marketing and brand innovation said, “By giving viewers the opportunity to watch the premiere episode of Claws on Twitter, we’re helping this terrific series build a strong fan base across the entirety of the season, and we’re establishing a meaningful connection with those fans through social media engagement.”
Twitter COO Anthony Noto said of the collaboration, “We are excited to collaborate again with Turner to help them reach new audiences on Twitter. Fans will be able to watch the video of the highly anticipated premiere of Claws and Tweet along with viewers and the cast all on the same platform.”
If you get the opportunity to watch the series premiere live, the cast will live Tweet along with the show and engage with fans as the suspense unfolds.
Claws will premiere on TNT Sunday, June 11 at 9 p.m. ET.
