Betty White Lands Hidden-Camera Series for NBC
Betty White is ready to prove she's off her rocker in a hidden-camera series for NBC.
Betty White's Off Their Rockers, hosted and executive-produced by the 89-year-old actress, will follow a group of seven senior citizens as they try to play pranks on unsuspecting younger people. The format comes from Europe's popular show Benidorm Bastards.
Betty White: "I've been getting away with it for 63 years"
"Betty White is a comedic genius who escalates hilarity in any situation," network executive Paul Telegdy said. "Viewers will thoroughly enjoy watching her pull one over on the unsuspecting youth of America."
White joked: "People have been telling me that I'm 'off my rocker' for years — now I can prove it."
