In a town that's no stranger to homicide, the killings of this married couple stand out for their brutality and disturbingly personal nature.

The search for the killer has detectives scrambling to solve this mystery... until their investigation leads to a kind, young, beautiful mother who fell in love with a handsome, violent ex-con.

Soon, they'll discover how Brittany Martin was pulled by the riptide of devotion, into the deep waters of being willing to do anything for her man.


TX Time: 22h00

Claws 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.

At the centre is salon owner Desna, who lives with and cares for her mentally ill twin brother, Dean.

Desna's staff includes best friend Jennifer, a tenuously sober ex-party girl raising two children from previous relationships; Quiet Ann, Desna's enigmatic driver who also provides security for the salon; Polly, a mild-mannered preppy who recently served time in prison for identity theft; and Virginia, who makes no effort to hide her boredom and impatience with her job.

Adding chaos to the Nail Artisan mix is Roller, a gangstered-out redneck who runs a barely legal pain clinic and uses Desna's nail salon to launder their obscene profits.

There's also Bryce, Jennifer's husband who is also newly sober and trying to stay legit by working as an abundance coach; and Dr. Ken Brickman, a bona fide doctor at a decidedly un-bona fide drug clinic.

Finally, there's Uncle Daddy, a dangerous Dixie Mafia crime boss who is deeply Catholic and actively bisexual.

In the series premiere, "Tirana": Desna and her girls take pride in doing nails at the Nail Artisans of Manatee County, but amidst painting hooves and dreaming of a better life, she finds herself entangled in a money laundering scheme with the Dixie Mafia.

As New Year's Eve approaches, Desna's promise of getting out and going clean is complicated when things go south with Roller, leading her and newcomer Virginia to take matters into their own hands, changing their lives forever.

Manifest 2

When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved.

Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on.

Faced with the impossible, they were all given a second chance.

But as their new realities became clear, a deeper mystery unfolded and some of the returned passengers soon realised they were meant for something greater.

In the first season, Manifest answered many questions about the mystery of Flight 828 - and this season they will ask many more.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Fasten Your Seatbelts": As the Stone family reels in the aftermath of a devastating shooting, they're hit with their most foreboding Calling yet.

This leads them to send Ben on a mission to locate two Flight 828 passengers who have mysteriously gone missing.

Intervention profiles people whose uncontrollable addiction to drugs, alcohol or compulsive behaviour has brought them to the brink of destruction and has devastated their families and friends.

In this series, addicts from every walk of life - from compulsive gamblers to shopaholics and drug addicts - confront their darkest demons and are presented a route to redemption.

Each episode culminates with an intervention in which the addicts are confronted by family, friends and a professional interventionist and given a choice to get treatment and help or face exile and isolation from those who love them most.

This season will follow the stories of addicts as they work to overcome their opioid addictions as well as one of the most dramatic recoveries in one of the largest drug hubs on the East Coast.

The team of expert interventionists will work with city officials, first responders and the families, offering a way out before it is too late.

This season, Intervention focuses on the journey of those plagued by addiction and their families who are left to pick up the pieces in what is dubbed Philadelphia's "Heroin Hub" and the surrounding communities.

Interventionists Ken Seeley, Donna Chavous, Heather Hayes, Michael Gonzalez and Jim Reidy face the biggest challenge of their careers as they attempt to help nine victims of addiction, who are in dire need of support, to get clean and gain control over their lives.

In the Season 17 premiere, "The Heroin Hub: Chapter 1": The interventionists arrive to Philadelphia's Heroin Hub and meet Nicole, a 39-year-old heroin addict and prostitute who's lived in the area for five years.

Returning fan favourites are joined by a new cast of young, hot female rappers all hungry for success - and they're ready to take a bite out of the Big Apple.

Taking the Love & Hip Hop: New York stage for the first time are a group of fresh, talented female artists trying to make it big in the city.

With personalities as strong as their rhymes, Mariah Lyn, Young B (of Chicken Noodle Soup fame) and SexxyLexxy and MissMoeMoney from the rap duo BBOD battle to make themselves heard.

With these girls dropping managers more often than mics, can Love & Hip Hop veteran Rah Ali navigate her new career as a music manager and keep these girls out of trouble?

Will they let past beef and love triangles hold them back? Who will rise to the top?

It's been a big year for Love & Hip Hop: New York veterans Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris, who tied the knot on VH1's Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding special, and welcomed their daughter Skylar.

This season, it's back to business for the newlyweds and time to focus on finding a bigger place to live and blending their families.

Yandy is ready to get back to managing artists and focus on her career but with Mendeecees' impending legal issues, their newly wedded bliss may not last long.

Since her recent release from prison, it's fresh onto the Love & Hip Hop scene for rap superstar Remy Ma and her ride-or-die rapper husband Papoose.

We follow Remy as she navigates through life on the outside and reclaims her crown as 'Queen of NY,' all while getting ready for a long-awaited official walk down the aisle.

Founding member of the Creep Squad, Rich Dollaz, finds himself contending with the newest lady of the house - his daughter. Rich learns that when it comes to his number one girl, he has no control.

Can she inspire her dad to completely change his messy ways or will he get wrapped up in some hot new talent?

Peter Gunz attempts to bring his two families together under the same roof, but will he finally be able to have his cake and eat it too?

Or will Tara and Amina shatter the love triangle once and for all?

Cisco Rosado is now single and on the prowl. Mixing business with pleasure never ends well but which new, female talent will he choose to produce and who will have him ready to get down on one knee?

Newcomer DJ Self from New York radio station Power 105.1 bursts into Love & Hip Hop as we follow his relationship with Yorma, one of the hottest dancers in New York City, and their tangled web of drama.

Can Self balance his packed schedule with his equally packed love life?

Firecracker and Instagram sensation Cardi B. leaps from the pages of IG to the small screen with a bang.

It's certain this tough cookie will deliver raw and real emotion as she entangles with her fellow cast members.

In the Season 6 premiere, "The Crown": Papoose helps Remy Ma manage her comeback, Yandy and Mendeecees receive bad news, and Amina tries to stick out her rocky love triangle with Peter and Tara.
