Channel 4 has ordered a series of new shorts to run on All 4, it's new digital hub that replaces 4oD.

From Twenty Twenty TV is Rich Kids Go Shopping (5 x 3 mins). The shorts follow rich teenagers and twenty-somethings from across Britain as they go on extreme shopping sprees. Each episode follows one wealthy young person who sets out with a target purchase – a car, serious jewellery or haute couture fashion.

Rumpus Media has made Total Recast (6 x 4 mins). The show follows delusional film director Simon Birch as he travels the country re-making classic movies in his own unique style – in 90 seconds starring people he finds on the high street.

Body Mods (6 x 3 mins) is a second series from Medialab and follows the journey of six people as they purposefully alter their bodies through a range of aesthetic procedures. Each film follows one person undergoing a body modification procedure such as scarification, tongue splitting or transdermal implants.‚Ä®

Drones In Forbidden Zones is a 6 x 3 minute series from Little Dot Studios. Each film centres on a dangerous or difficult to access location including sites such as Bass Maltings in Sleaford; Willington Power Station in Derbyshire, one of the few cooling tower sites still standing in the UK; and the now derelict Camelot Theme Park in Lancashire once inspired by the medieval Camelot legend but since abandoned.

Drinking With (6 x 6 mins) from Spirit Digital is fronted by 77-year-old drinks connoisseur Ross Harvey who gets to know six different weird and wonderful groups, exploring their culture over a drink.

The new digital service All 4 will launch on Monday 30th March on PC, iPads and iPhones. At the same time, the new All 4 brand identity replaces the 4oD brand across all platforms.

The new design has three parts On Demand (for archived programming), Now (live TV) and On Soon (upcoming previews and online premieres).
