NBCUniversal’s Peacock is making strides to cast its net as wide as possible. To do so, they’ve tapped former Nightly Show host, Larry Wilmore. His show will launch alongside the Amber Ruffin Show.
Watch this clip of Late Night:
Ruffin’s show will run for nine episodes while Wilmore’s will go for 11. Though, unlike the Late Night with Seth Meyers writer’s show, Wilmore’s has yet to be named. Odds are, it will be a talk show and similar to the naming convention seen with other talk shows.
Amber Ruffin is the first black woman to write for a late-night talk show. Her show will bring to light current events with a combination of seriousness and comedy
Larry Wilmore’s project, on the other hand, will house interviews with seasoned experts in the worlds of sports, entertainment, and politics. Both shows will debut in September on Peacock.
