Betty White to Host Hidden-Camera Prank Show on NBC
At age 89, Betty White isn’t showing any signs of slowing down just yet, as many witnessed at LaughFest.
About a year after she famously hosted ‘Saturday Night Live,’ the multiple Emmy-winning TV star will return to NBC for a new hidden-camera show, tentatively titled ‘Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,’ in which senior citizens “make it their mission to play pranks on unsuspecting younger people.”
“Betty White is a comedic genius who escalates hilarity in any situation. Viewers will thoroughly enjoy watching her pull one over on the unsuspecting youth of America,” said NBC’s Paul Telegdy in a statement on Thursday.
Added White: “People have been telling me that I’m ‘Off My Rocker’ for years. Now I can prove it.”
The report adds that White will continue to appear on the TV Land sitcom ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ for which she recently received a Screen Actors Guild Award.
The legendary comedienne has a longstanding relationship with the network, which aired ‘The Golden Girls’ for seven seasons. Last year, White won an Emmy for her hosting gig on ‘Saturday Night Live.’
Suddenly, 89 is the new 25.
