Hipps upped at Media Rights Capital

Will become VP of production, creative affairs

Media Rights Capital has promoted Joe Hipps to VP of production and creative affairs at its TV operations.

As part of his expanded gig, Hipps will handle development and programming at MRC’s TV department. He reports to MRC co-CEOs Modi Wiczyk and Asif Satchu, who announced the appointment on Wednesday.

Wiczyk and Satchu said the exec had “proven himself effective at different networks, in different formats and genres. His success with a broad range of development and production impressed us tremendously.”

Hipps joined MRC in 2008. Prior to that, he ran Dawn Parouse’s 20th Century Fox TV-based shingle, and also served as director of development at Adelstein-Parouse Prods.

Parouse, who spent time as a development exec at MRC, left last year to launch the shingle Grady Twins with Marti Noxon.

At MRC, Hipps has worked on projects such as “The Ricky Gervais Show,” “The Life and Times of Tim,” “The Goode Family” and the upcoming “House of Cards.”
