TV show description:
This hidden-camera TV show is adapted from Benidorm Bastards, a hit TV series from Belgium. The elderly play pranks on members of the younger set as they take senior stereotypes and turn them on their ear, thanks to a cast of sassy septuagenarians who are hip, sexy and ready to party.
Betty White, “America’s favorite comedy sweetheart,” sends a fearless band of senior citizens to the streets to pull shocking and (hopefully) hilarious pranks on the younger generation.
In the vein of Punk’d, the show delivers specifically-crafted comedic stunts, candid moments and funny sketches captured by hidden cameras. Sassy seniors are on a mission, targeting unsuspecting young “marks” with their irreverent behavior — from asking a young girl in a mall to sign a petition banning ugly people from reproducing to having an older woman proposition a young man at an airport gate to join her in the “mile high” club.
This series has not ended yet.
First aired: TBD
