ADAM McKAY (Director/Written by/Producer) co-wrote and directed Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and Step Brothers, the latter two of which he also executive produced.

McKay co-wrote all three films with Will Ferrell. The two had been longtime friends since spending several years together on "Saturday Night Live,” where McKay served as head writer and the creator of many of that series' most memorable sketches and short films from 1995-2001.

McKay also serves as executive producer of the HBO series "Eastbound & Down”; he also directed an episode of the first season. The second season will begin airing in September. On the big screen, McKay produced The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard. On Broadway, he directed Ferrell in the Tony-nominated show "You're Welcome America: A Final Night with George W. Bush.”

Along with Will Ferrell and Chris Henchy, McKay started the comedy site Funny or Die, which now gets 35 million hits a year. McKay also wrote and acted in The Landlord, which starred his then-20-month-old daughter, Pearl.

Born in Philadelphia, he trained in improvisational theatre with the Second City performance group in Chicago and was a co-founder of the Upright Citizens Brigade. He also wrote for Michael Moore's TV show "The Awful Truth.”
