Standout Late Night With Seth Meyers writer and performer Amber Ruffin is getting her own series, and it’s headed to NBC’s new streaming platform, which the network revealed is named Peacock. In a press release today, NBC unveiled a slate of upcoming programming for Peacock, which includes a series from Ruffin titled The Amber Ruffin Show. The weekly series is described as “a late-night show with just the good parts — the comedy” and will show off Ruffin’s “signature smart-and-silly take on the week.” Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker are credited as executive producers on the show, and Ruffin’s frequent Late Night collaborator on “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell,” Jenny Hagel, is credited as a writer.
Ruffin has had other comedies in the works at NBC within the past few years. Back in 2017, the network put into development a pilot from Ruffin titled Going Dutch, and then earlier this year it ordered a pilot presentation for a new series produced by Seth Meyers titled Village Gazette. The Amber Ruffin Show doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but Peacock is now officially set to launch next April.
