Hughes made her BBC Radio 4 debut in August 2013 by writing and starring in her own sitcom pilot named 28 Dates Later.

In 2018, Hughes was working on developing a comedian travel show that would feature herself and Whoopi Goldberg. However, despite Goldberg having agreed to do the show, no TV channel was interested and the show did not get made.
