I live in Tenn and have a TV room over my unfinished garage. I want to install an outlet in the floor in the middle of my TV room. I'm thinking that I can simply run a new line from an existing outlet in my garage, up the wall and along the ceiling to where the middle of my TV room is.

Is this allowed - code wise and is there anything I should be aware of such as special outlet boxes, etc.?

You'll need to obtain a box & cover that is listed for use in a floor. You probably won't be able to get one at the home improvement stores, so try an electrical supply house.
