NBC Developing ‘Going Dutch’ Comedy Series from ‘Late Night’ Writer Amber Ruffin

ruffin-spittakeLate Night writer/performer Amber Ruffin might be getting her very own show on NBC. Deadline reports that the network has put into development a series from Ruffin and Legends of Chamberlain Heights co-creator Michael Starrbury called Going Dutch, which is based on Ruffin’s life and “explores what happens when a woman who moves abroad to escape her overbearing family and the responsibility of the family business returns home with her Dutch boyfriend. He is a renaissance man whose blunt, outsider perspective might be exactly what Amber, her family and their business needs.” Ruffin – who previously had a show in development at NBC last year– would star in the series and also executive produce the project alongside Seth Meyers, Michael Shoemaker, and Lorne Michaels.
