She recently celebrated her 90th birthday, but Betty White is giving no indication of any interest in retiring. Rather, she’s premiering a new show, “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,” Wednesday (4/4) on NBC.
Betty White’s Off Their Rockers is a hidden camera series
White stars in and executive produce the series, which delivers cleverly-crafted comedic stunts, candid moments and priceless reactions captured by hidden cameras. The series features audacious seniors pulling “shocking, hilarious pranks” on the younger generation. 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.
The series premieres Wednesday, April 4 (8:00-8:30 pm ET) on NBC.
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.”
Chris Coelen, Emma Conway, Matilda Zoltowski, Betty White, Scott Hallock, Kevin Healey, Tim Van Aelst and Tim Gibbons are the executive producers of the series, produced by Kinetic Content in association with Hallock Healey Entertainment.
