Tarantula is an animated half hour comedy written by Carson Mell (Silicon Valley, Eastbound & Down) and executive produced by Danny McBride and Rough House Pictures. Set at the Tierra Chula Resident Hotel aka the Tarantula, it centers on Echo Johnson, a respected but uncertified tattoo artist, who delivers absurd yet introspective monologues. Echo’s poetic ramblings tell tales of misadventures with the other residents including Lucas the sci-fi writer and bread truck driver, Booty the sensitive lead singer, and Bess, a lady whose toughness was forged in the local honky-tonks, as they partake in party crashing, dumpster diving, and other socially dubious acts of mischief.
