NEW YORK -- Media Rights Capital has promoted Joe Hipps to the post of vp, production and creative affairs, MRC Television.

He will report to MRC co-CEOs Modi Wiczyk and Asif Satchu.

The film, TV and digital studio said Hipps has been an integral part of its TV division, overseeing such projects as "The Ricky Gervais Show," two seasons of "The Life and Times of Tim" on HBO, "The Goode Family" and "Shaq Vs."

In his new role, Hipps will be responsible for leading the creative efforts of the independent studio's TV department.

"Joe has cut his teeth on partnerships with elite talent -- from Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant, to Shaquille O'Neal, David Fincher, Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky," said Wiczyk and Satchu. "He has proven himself effective at different networks, in different formats and genres."

Prior to joining MRC in 2008, Hipps ran Dawn Parouse's production company within 20th Century Fox Television and was director of development for Adelstein-Parouse Productions, where he worked on "Prison Break."
