The first season of TBS new animated series Tarantula is set to debut today with all episodes available to binge in one sitting. The series comes from comedy producers with impressive track records including Carson Mell of Silicon Valley and Danny McBride and Jody Hill of Vice Principals and Eastbound & Down. Brandon James and David Gordon Green are also producers.

Set at the Tierra Chula Resident Hotel, aka The Tarantula, the series centers on Echo Johnson (Mell), 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 (Dan Bakkedahl) the sci-fi writer and bread truck driver, Booty (Mell) the sensitive lead singer, and Bess (Lauren Weedman) a lady whose toughness was forged in the local honky-tonks. They partake in party crashing, dumpster diving, and other socially dubious acts of mischief. Riki Lindhome, Jacob Vargas, Steve Jones and Tati Gabrielle also lend their voice talents to the series.

“I started this show as a web series, a total labor of love, almost six years ago.” said Mell.  “Since then, the world of Los Palicios, California and its oddball inhabitants has grown and grown in my head. I’m beyond excited to finally share Echo Johnson, and all his friends new and old, with the world in this new, more complete, way.”
