NBC and Betty White are together again. The network that hosted "Golden Girls" for seven seasons has given White's new hidden-camera reality show the green light.
The 89-year-old actress will host and executive produce the 12-episode series, which is being called "Betty White's Off Their Rockers," but that's a working title. The show is based on an award-winning European program called “Benidorm Bastards" that was originally produced in Belgium.
According to a statement, “Betty White's Off Their Rockers” will follow “a band of seven senior citizens who make it their mission to play pranks on unsuspecting younger people."
Said White, "People have been telling me that I’m ‘Off My Rocker’ for years - now I can prove it.”
The comedy series is just the latest project White has added to her to-do list. On top of starring in TV Land's "Hot In Cleveland," her book on everything from celebrity to sex, "If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won’t)," arrives in May.
