MTV and Viacom Digital Studios International have teamed up to create four new short-form originals featuring Geordie Shore cast members as well as reboots of classic formats.

Dating series Singled Out returns to the small screen with MTV helping a studio full of singles find their perfect match. The original format has been updated to include new twists and turns, the network said. A series premiere date has not yet been announced.

Elsewhere, Geordie Shore cast member Chloe Ferry reveals her unique approach to modern-day ‘adulting’ in the six-part series Chloe Ferry Is a Grown Up. From cleaning and holiday prep, to entertaining and DIY, viewers will see Ferry’s personal hacks to being an adult. The series bows March 20.

Meanwhile, the culinary program Scotty’s Tea will follow British reality TV personality and former Geordie Shore cast member Scotty Timlin as he tackles an ambitious recipe alongside a celebrity guest. Scotty’s Tea does not yet have a premiere date.

Wrapping up the new digital series slate is the previously announced Geordie Cribs, which follows a cast member of the UK reality series Geordie Shore around their home and allows audiences the chance to see what their life is really like outside of the Geordie Shore house. Cast members Sophie Kasaei, Chloe Ferry and Sam Gowland, Marnie Simpson, Abbie Holborn and Kyle Christie will take viewers on a tour of their homes. Geordie Cribs will premiere Feb. 25.

All four digital series are produced by Viacom Digital Studios International in partnership with MTV International. The series are executive produced by Craig Orr, Iestyn Barker and Jonathan Pascoe.

All series will be available via Facebook Watch, YouTube and MTV’s international web and social platforms, with their linear premieres expected following their respective digital rollouts. Additionally, the programs will be localized into multiple languages for each launch.
