“We have ended up being able to work with some of my favorite writers on the planet,” Ruffin said. “Even though we are this new streaming show, we have a writers’ room full of true heavy hitters of the present and future.”
“The Amber Ruffin Show” premiered in September on the Peacock streaming service with Ruffin as writer/host/executive producer and Jenny Hagel as head writer and executive producer. Both Ruffin and Hagel come from “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” where they also serve as writers and regularly contribute segments.
The show has been an early bright spot for Peacock, and weekly episodes began airing Fridays in late night on NBC.
