Called Renegade TV, the two hour strand will run for five weeks kicking off on 17 September with Renegade TV Gets Dazed. It claims it will explore the lifestyle and vision of those at "the cutting edge of British culture" including Irvine Welsh and Kathy Burke.

Dazed and Confused's co-publishers, Jefferson Hack and Rankin, have commissioned a number of directors to realise a range of programming ideas, from documentaries to spoof advertising, within the two hours slots allocated.

According to Hack and Rankin: "We want to claim some new territory to showcase the work of emerging talent and express the feelings of creative people at the forefront of Britain in film, music, art, fashion, animation and comedy."
