Betty White to Host New Reality Series

Do you know those segments on "Jackass" where Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze get into old-age make-up and perform stunts on Rascal scooters? Well, get ready for the real thing.

NBC has just announced a new senior citizen-focused prank show to be hosted by 89 year-old Betty White.

"Betty White's Off Their Rockers" (working title), is being described as a hidden-camera comedy show where seniors pull pranks on unsuspecting whippersnappers.

In an official release, White joked: "People have been telling me that I'm 'Off My Rocker' for years -- now I can prove it."

The show is an American version of a format that has already been sold in more than 20 territories, including France, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Greece, and South Korea.

NBC has ordered 12 episodes of "Rockers." No air dates have been set yet.
