Media darling Betty White — aka Hollywood’s most liked celebrity — brings her wit and charm to “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,” a new hidden camera series premiering April 4 according to an NBC press release. She and her band of naughty seniors place hidden cameras capturing them punking the younger generation.
White stars in and executive produces the series, which delivers comedic stunts, candid moments and priceless reactions captured by hidden cameras. In the premiere, fearless seniors target unsuspecting young “marks” with their irreverent behavior, from pouring a late spouse’s ashes on a favorite park bench or writing up tickets for absurd, made-up violations, to asking strangers to watch a runaway motorized scooter or pretending to see a dead person who appears all too real.
Other pranks include asking strangers to text shockingly inappropriate messages, a man taking matters into his own hands when he needs a tooth extracted and a hungover woman with a surprising occupation sharing far too much about her weekend in Las Vegas.
At 90 years old, White remains one of the busiest – and funniest – actresses in Hollywood, whose credits range from the classic “The Mary Tyler Moore show” and “Golden Girls” to her current starring role on “Hot in Cleveland.”
On January 16, 12.3 million viewers tuned in to see a sneak preview of “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,” following the NBC special “Betty White’s 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America’s Golden Girl.” She also made a cameo appearance in the promo commercial for NBC’s hit “The Voice” during the Super Bowl.
