When one park closes, a nail salon opens. Rashida Jones is set to trade in Ann Perkins' nursing scrubs for a new HBO show set in said salon.

The "Parks & Recreation" star is set to leave the NBC comedy this season, and will team up with her longtime writing and producing partner Will McCormack -- the two wrote "Celeste and Jesse Forever" together -- to produce "Claws." According to Deadline, the show is described as a "midnight-dark workplace dramedy-noir about a nail salon in Florida and the strange, dangerous women who work there."

"Claws" marks Jones' sixth TV sale overall. Deadline also reports that Eliot Laurence from "The Big Gay Sketch Show" will write and co-executive produce.

If "Claws" somehow manages to combine Jones and McCormack's sweet yet sad tones with HBO's other offbeat and dark workplace drama, "Getting On," we'll be very lucky viewers.
