The Meadowlark Media venture between John Skipper and Dan Le Batard is adding its next creative contributor. Producer Adam McKay is jumping aboard the pirate ship to work on various projects, as both parties announced their partnership on Le Batard’s “South Beach Sessions.” 

“I don’t think we’re violating anything when I say that Adam McKay and I are thrilled to just be doing stuff in the future together,” Le Batard said on the podcast. “He has been a very supportive friend. I am touched and honored that he is doing anything with us.”

McKay is an avid listener of The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz, and so when the opportunity to work together presented itself, the producer didn’t think twice. Both guys didn’t reveal much in terms of what projects lie ahead.  

“I’m excited to work with you on projects,” McKay said. “Like I can’t wait, now that you’re kind of free and clear. Like you and I were kicking around an idea that I definitely think we should do. A series, maybe it’ll be a podcast.”

The producer is working on a basketball-themed series for his production company Hyperobject Industries called Death at the Wing. It’s a series chronicling various players who died during the 1980s and 1990s as the NBA was approaching peak popularity. Perhaps these are the types of projects that McKay could tackle with his partnership with Meadowlark Media

Nonetheless, the two did joke about collaborating on “Step Brothers 2” with Le Batard taking over the Will Ferrell role. Jokes aside, McKay is the latest name to join Meadowlark Media as Jemele Hill, and Michael Schur also jumped on board this venture.

The name was inspired by Big Cat’s love of coffee and his love for his recue dog Stella.

Barstool conducted a recent fan survey, and 80% of respondents said they drink coffee on a daily basis. Katz and the folks at Barstool listened, and so Stella Blue was born.

The coffee will feature three different blends. Positive Vibes is the light roast, Big Cat Blend is the medium roast and Electric Avenue Dark Roast. The coffee is available in 12-ounce whole bean bags, 12-ounce ground bags and pods for Keurig lovers.

A portion of the proceeds from sales of the coffee will go to PAWS Chicago, the largest no-kill humane organization in Dan’s hometown.
