She's helmed SNL, appeared in a Super Bowl commercial, and shot photos as a sexy pinup calendar girl, but now Betty White has a new industry venture to add to her resume: Reality TV host!

NBC announced Thursday that the 89-year-old will host Betty White's Off Their Rockers, a hidden camera show that follows seven senior citizens who join with White to prank "the unsuspecting youth of America."

"People have been telling me that I'm 'off my rocker' for years -- now I can prove it," White joked in a statement.

The peacock net has ordered 12 episodes of the series based on a Belgian program. An air date has not yet been announced.

White's new reality venture is her latest in a laundry list of partnerships with NBC.

In addition to appearing as Rose Nyland on Golden Girls for seven years, White earned an Emmy for her hosting gig on the channel's late-night staple Saturday Night Live. White's TV Land sitcom, Hot in Cleveland, has been renewed for a third season and her book, If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won't), is scheduled to be released in May.
