The animated Tarantula, from creator Carson Mell (Silicon Valley) and Rough House Pictures, follows a respected but uncertified tattoo artist who delivers absurd yet introspective monologues, said the network.

In addition, TBS also announced a pilot order for a comedy show World's End, starring Hamish Linklater and Wanda Sykes, and executive produced by Ben Silverman. The pilot follows a charismatic high school English teacher who has a breakdown and is committed to a mental institution, but ends up spearheading an inmate revolt.
