The 6 x 5-9min comedy, written and directed by Tom Slater and starring Jacob Warner (Hacksaw Ridge) and Thomas Larkin (Homecoming Queens), explores the hilarious world of modern masculinity via two best friends who get their nails done together and talk about their relationships. Bold, witty and colourful, SEXY NAILS takes place entirely within the one nail salon and is a showcase for Slater’s tight scripting and expressive directing, ably assisted by standout performances from Warner and Larkin, along with Kate Cheel (Strange Colours), Kelly Nguyen and Ann Ngo Lang.

AVOD streamer Roku has recently moved into the Originals space, with their latest acquisitions including Werner Film Productions’ The Newsreader and the Roku Originals Reno 911! and Weird starring Daniel Radcliffe. With an audience of 60 million plus in the US, the deal presents an exciting opportunity for SEXY NAILS to find an audience in America as Slater develops a half-hour series based on the concept, called LIFE PARTNERS, along with several other film and TV projects.

SEXY NAILS was produced by Tom Slater and Emily O’Connell for Photoplay Films, who also provided finance for the micro-budget series along with Slater. Oliver Lawrance and Scott Otto Anderson serve as Executive Producers.
