MRC ups Joe Hipps to VP in TV division

27 January 2010 2:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Media Rights Capital has promoted Joe Hipps to vp production and creative affairs at Mrc Television.

This marks the first time indie producer MRC has had a senior executive overseeing its TV operations since October 2008, when the company parted ways with Keith Samples, its first TV head.

Hipps, whose focus will be on the creative side of development and production, will report to Mrc co-CEOs Modi Wiczyk and Asif Satchu, who had been running the TV division in the past year.

Mrc burst into the TV scene in 2008 with an aggressive launch of a half-dozen scripted series in its first year. It was a dealt a major blow when its Sunday programming block on the CW was pulled shortly after its fall 2008 launch because of poor ratings.

Of its first batch of series, only the animated "The Life and Times of Tim" on HBO and sitcom "Rita Rocks" on Lifetime earned renewals. »
