Ruffin is currently developing an untitled scripted comedy series for NBC with Seth Meyers, about a has-been sibling singing group from the 1980’s that now make ends meet by doing what no musician wants to do – writing jingles and performing their old hits at parties. Ruffin will serve as co-executive producer and Seth Meyers will executive produce with Mike Shoemaker and Andrew Singer.

In an interview with Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, Ruffin said, “It took me so many years to do what I thought was funny. I spent forever writing what I thought people wanted me to write, doing characters I thought people wanted to see and I was wrong for so long. Once I started writing to make myself laugh, things were a lot funnier and easier to write.”
