The Meadowlark partners signaled their ambition to cast a wide lens on sports, entertainment and culture by revealing that former ESPN personality Jemele Hill and “The Good Place” creator Michael Schur would serve as creative advisers for the company. Skipper, who serves as CEO, also confirmed that the venture has raised $12.6 million in private funding to build up its content pipeline.
