Just heard this phrase in an ad for a documentary.

The meaning is obvious but at first blush it struck me as a bit odd. Google tells me the phrase has some currency.

Reminded me a bit of GW Bush’s “hispanically owned.”

Nothing wrong with a bit of ad hoc adverbisation, I suppose.

I’ve heard the verb to executive produce, but the adverbial form is new to me.
