The television channel has ordered 12 episodes of Betty White’s Off Their Rockers that will be hosted and executive -produced by White herself.
The programme is based on a successful reality-show format that was successful in Europe and it will follow seven senior citizens who make it their mission to play pranks on unsuspecting younger people.
”Betty White is a comedic genius who escalates hilarity in any situation,” NBC’s executive vice president Paul Telegdy said in a statement. “Viewers will thoroughly enjoy watching her pull one over on the unsuspecting youth of America.”
Adds White, “People have been telling me that I’m ‘Off My Rocker’ for years — now I can prove it.”
White, 89, starred in the sitcom “The Golden Girls” and won an Emmy last year as host of “Saturday Night Live.” She currently stars in the TV Land series “Hot in Cleveland.”
