Betty White to host senior NBC comedy 'Betty White's Off Their Rockers'
The comedy involves the universal battle of old versus new. It's coming to television thanks to White, who will host and serve as executive producer of the hidden-camera prank show, according to our sister blog Show Tracker.
"People have been telling me that I'm 'Off My Rocker' for years," the 89-year-old said in a statement. "Now I can prove it."
The prank show, which we would rather call "Punk'd With a Walker," is based on an award-winning Flemish series called "Benidorm Bastards."
The funnywoman became America's sweetheart thanks to interest in her series "The Golden Girls" (which originally aired on NBC) and gigs with "Saturday Night Live," which earned her a seventh Emmy; "Community"; a Snickers Super Bowl commercial and her current TV Land series "Hot in Cleveland." She was also named the Associated Press' entertainer of the year last December.
Oh, Betty, we love you. But please, don't play any tricks on us.
