Betty White to host new NBC reality show

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Betty White is adding a new NBC hidden-camera reality series to her resume.

NBC said Thursday that it has ordered 12 episodes of "Betty White's Off Their Rockers," the working title for a series about senior citizens who band together to play pranks on younger people.

White will host the series, which is based on a hit Belgian show that has been produced in other European countries.

In a statement, the 89-year-old actress joked that people have been telling her she's off her rocker for years, and now she has a chance to prove it.

White has a track record at NBC. She starred in the network's hit sitcom "The Golden Girls" for seven seasons and won an Emmy last year for her "Saturday Night Live" appearance.
