NBC teams with Betty White

TV icon to host new Peacock series 'Off Their Rockers'

By STUART LEVINE
NBC is jumping on the Betty White bandwagon.
The 89-year-old TV legend is set to exec produce and host hidden camera reality show “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers.” Peacock ordered 12 half-hour episodes.
“Rockers,” which will focus on a group of senior citizens who play pranks on unsuspecting younger folks, will be produced by Chris Coelen’s new shingle Kinetic Content. Coelen was formerly the topper at RDF USA.
“People have been telling me that I’m off my rocker for years, and now I can prove it,” White said.
Network wouldn’t commit to an air date as of yet, but summer would certainly be a strong possibility.
White was a fixture on NBC a generation ago when she starred in “The Golden Girls,” which ran on the Peacock from 1985-92. Her latest sitcom venture is TV Land’s buzzy “Hot in Cleveland.”
In addition to White and Coelen, Matilda Zoltowski and Tim Van Aelst will exec produce. Deal was packaged by APA.
