Baja’s getting hip with boffo TV studio

Facility aims to complement Fox Studios Baja

A full-service television studio has gone up in Baja California, a mile south of Fox Studios Baja, where “Titanic,” “Pearl Harbor,” “Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World” and other blockbusters have been shot.

Set up by Los Angeles-based Hip Entertainment Group, a diversified company that focuses on the development and production of English- and Spanish-lingo content, the 2,500-square-foot facility aims to complement Fox’s studio, most famous for the giant water tanks built for James Cameron’s epic.

HIP’s husband-and-wife team Beatriz Acevedo and Doug Greiff are producing most of their series commitments at the facility, including the post-production supervision of HIP TV’s three-season, 195-episode order of “Plaza Sesamo,” the Spanish-lingo version of long-running kids skein “Sesame Street.”

Other HIP TV skeins in production include an initial 13 episodes of a yet-to-be-named food and home decor series for Scripps Network and “The World at Your Table,” a 13-episode fine dining and lifestyle skein for the Fine Living Network.

Acevedo and Greiff are tapping the wealth of talent residing in Baja California. “A favorable exchange rate and the use of local crew and talent help producers keep costs down by as much as 50%,” said Greiff.
