Betty White hosting NBC hidden camera reality series

NBC announced today that it ordered 12 episodes of a hidden-camera reality series called Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, which will be hosted by former The Golden Girls star.

It’s based on the European series Benidorm Bastards and “follows a band of seven senior citizens who make it their mission to play pranks on unsuspecting younger people,” according to NBC.

I’m totally over hidden camera series, but Betty White and this slight twist on the premise will be enough to get me to tune in.
